Another thought with regards to %SYSFUNC. It might be possible for
you to use data step(s) where you are now using MACRO language and
%SYSFUNC. Which would require some extra work but may allow you to use
your FCMP functions.
Do you want some help with regards to "various string searches and
manipulations"? You might get solutions that are "better" and do not
require as much special processing as you might think.
