Subject: A simple code, forgetting the dot in an informat
I submitted a simple code where I accidently forgot the dot in an
informat, then SAS ran like for ever without giving error information. I
am just curious about what SAS was doing after submitting this code. Here
is the code:
input x $ y : $9 @@; * note I forget the dot with $9;
The raw data file b only has a few records and each record consists of
three observations (that's why I use @@).
Anyway, can anyone have any comments about this? Thanks a lot.
