...SAS/C Y2K error?
I'm making use of __DATE__ with SAS/C for the first
time and discovered that the date is off by one day.
At first I thought my RTC might be out of line with
reality but it is correct. SASI made a Y2K error
when they implemented the __DATE__ operations?

Job Loca...Global variable modifiable by some translation units but not others
Let's say I have a global variable int var which I want
to be known to translation units T1 and T2, I want T1
to be able to read its value and modify it and T2 to be
able to read its value but not modify it. Would it work
if I declare it inside T1 as "extern int var" and inside T2
as "extern const int var" ?

I just can't think of an adequate description. Thorough, yes, but voluminous!

People work in a server could share SAS code to each other. Sometims, one
could accidently change others' code and save it. Is there a way that autho=
could lock the SAS code from editing and still could share it with others?
More details please:
* what operating system?
* where is the code stored? external files? sas catalog entry? etc.
Your question begs the answer "just make the file readonly", but without
appropriate details it's difficult to help further.

I'm reading some new stats books from work and I would like to look at some
examples of SAS code and datasets where bootstrapping has or could be
applied and the benefits that have been derived from this method.
Search the SUGI proceedings for applications of bootstrap in SAS.
There are a number of bootstrap macros that have been referenced over the
years; look at the comp.soft-sys.sas in google-groups.

I think SAS does provide evaluation copies for potential customers,
but you are not one your future employer already has the software.
You should look at the SAS learning edition it is not free but will

I never relied on tests like this for hiring candidates or advising on them.
Why? I think they miss out on whether they will be a good coder. For
example, I have been coding in SAS a long, long, long time yet I still have
to go and look up x, y, and z when needed (the SAS editor lacks Intellisense
so coding is far more difficult).
When I need to get deep into SAS code, I have to re-orient my brain from
C#/OOP to SAS. Doing that on the spot is not indicative of understanding the
concepts and that, to me, is the main determination. Does SAS's epochal date
start at an index of 0 or 1? Well, ...Problem with UNIX/Linux Shared Libraries and Global variables ...
