What a fascinating thread!
I want to take this time to thank each and every one of you who has contributed
his or her time posting answers on SAS-L. I _DO_ appreciate your effort, your
intellect, your slant, and your expertise. I love it when the answers are 100%
accurate; I understand completely when they are not.
My overall opinion about SAS-L can be summarized in the execution of the
"UNTESTED" SAS code below. I sure hope that you do not
cut-and-paste-and-execute it, and then blast me for its inaccuracies:-)
options nodate nonumber;
input @1 linenum 2.
@4 words $char8.
set untested end=eof;
retain z 1;
substr(message,z,8) = words;
z + 9;
if eof then do;
proc print noobs label;
label message = 'Generally, on SAS-L I find that: ';
I hope that this suggestion proves helpful now, and in the future!
Of course, all of these opinions and insights are my own, and do not
reflect those of my organization or my associates.
