Subject: Is this something that would be useful on sasCommunity.org?
I'll be the first to admit that I don't know a lot about wikis. Similarly,
I used to depend heavily on the master index that used to be available to
all SAS documentation.
Would it be useful to create such an index on sasCommunity.org, including
all documented and non-documented procedures, functions, etc.? That is, an
index of everything that is in the indexes of the various volumes of
documentation and, at the same time, providing links to SAS-L posts and
I tend to think that it would be useful in its own right as a reference tool
but, at the same time, think it would be useful to let us know what hasn't
been recorded on the wiki.
My first rough draft can be found in a spreadsheet at:
I'm not going to convert the spreadsheet to a wiki page until/unless others
let me know that they think it would be useful. Similarly, this is a
project that I definitely can't do alone. It doesn't matter that multiple
people would be downloading and revising the spreadsheet simultaneously.
The multiple copies can always be merged.
Interested in hearing what others think about such an effort.
