This book covers most SAS programming techniques, from the basics to intermediate and advanced topics. As indicated by the title, every programming technique is illustrated by one or more examples. Each chapter contains problems so that it could also be used as a textbook in a college course. Solutions to the odd-numbered problems are included in the book, while a complete set of solutions are available online for instructors. The four major sections cover getting started, DATA step processing, presenting and summarizing your data, and advanced topics (such as reading unstructured data and using multilabel and embedded formats). Anyone who programs using SAS, from beginner to intermediate and advanced users, will find this book helpful. The example approach makes it unique. If you ask most programmers how they learn to program or understand a SAS feature, they will tell you that they want to see an example. Every example in the book is followed by a detailed explanation of how the program works. Because this book covers so many diverse topics, it should be an ideal reference for SAS users. There is enough detail, in chapters covering such topics as PROC REPORT or PROC TABULATE, that for many users, this book will be all they need (in addition to SAS OnlineDoc, of course).
