"Handbook of SAS DATA Step Programming provides a thorough introduction to the statements and functionalities of the SAS DATA step. The book can be used as an introductory tutorial for beginning SAS programmers or as a reference book for experienced users. ... Many users of DATA step have a strong statistical background, but not all of them really try to understand DATA step as a programming language. The Handbook covers this gap and helps statisticians improving their programming efficiency using SAS DATA step."
