SAS Global Forum Suits You to a Tee!

Dear SAS-L-ers,

Did you see that there is a SAS Global Forum T Shirt Contest?  No?  Then, c=
heck out the bottom of the page at this link:

http://www.sascommunity.org/wiki/Main_Page

That looks like a lot of fun to me, and I intend to submit a couple of idea=
s.  Let's see if we can get one or more SAS-L-ers into the twelve finalists=
..  Maybe we can get a predictive modeler to determine what our chances are:=
)  Good luck to one and all; I hope that you will be one of the other eleve=
n finalists:)

Best of luck in all of your SAS endeavors!


I hope that this suggestion proves helpful now, and in the future!

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.

How to lock the SAS code from editing?
Hi, there, 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= r could lock the SAS code from editing and still could share it with others? Thank you.

Re: SAS Certification #31
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, ...
