Subject: What does *proc mean ?
Recently I got a program, there is a statement:
And this program really works. What does "*" mean here ?
I guess that is a comment statement. SAS programers often "comment
statements out" by preceding the statements with an asterisk. For
example, if you don't need the statements now but may use them later,
you don't have to delete them. Instead, you can put a * at the
beginning of the statements, thereby making them comment statements.
