Subject: Help me find an ancient SAS distribution
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1
For the last 5 years or so I have been looking for a SAS distribution
that would run on one of my MicroVAX II's in my MicroVAX II Museum
I have contacted SAS public relations and a couple of regional SAS
offices asking for help obtaining a magnetic tape with a SAS
distribution from the 80's on it, but unfortunately they have not been
able to help me. Nothing like that has come up on eBay for years, and
a few corporates I contacted could not help me either.
But I refuse to give up - there must be quite a few SAS distribution
tapes tucked away somewhere waiting to be discovered. All I need is
for SAS/BASE and SAS/STAT to run. No commercial interest of course -
just preservation of a small bit of computer history.
I would need to have the thing licensed in order to run, and I don't
know yet how it would all come together, but first things first - I
still don't even have a distribution tape.
So if anyone can help me find a SAS version (5.0?) that would run on
VAX/VMS 4.7 or 5,1, I would be most grateful.
