SAS (originally Statistical Analysis System) is an integrated system of software products provided by SAS Institute Inc. that enables programmers to perform:
- retrieval, management, and mining
- report writing and graphics statistical analysis
- business planning, forecasting, and decision support
- operations research and project management
- quality improvement
- applications development
- data warehousing (extract, transform, load)
- platform independent and remote computing
An basic SAS submission script is shown below:
#!/bin/csh #$ -M <your_netid>@nd.edu #$ -m abe module load sas sas job.sas
SAS has a number of options:
- work/location : This is the location of your work area. It is needed if it is not defined in your SAS initialization files.
- nodms : This stops SAS from using its GUI capability and goes into a text only mode.
- filelocks none : This causes SAS to not use filelocking.
- sysin file : Designate a file for SAS to load as its input.
- memsize : Indicate the maximum memory required by the simulation
As of January 2012, SAS has an unlimited access license on the University of Notre Dame campus.
