Yes, I do mean mainframe LPAR
There is a version for z out there, I just don't know anything about it yet

When you say "LPAR", do you mean a mainframe? I was not aware that R was available for a mainframe.
Of course, I've never used R either. Old dog here.

Subject: base sas vs. r
So we have base SAS and only base SAS licensed on one LPAR
We are debating moving some test systems from this LPAR to another and since they use SAS, it would need to be moved too, along with any processes that use SAS
I have suggested looking at using R instead of SAS
I have never used R myself
Does R mostly cover 100% of at least base SAS?
