|Diagramming and Documentation
||Manual effort to diagram, document, and maintain SAS®
Automatically generates program and data flow diagrams from base SAS®
Visualizer - Enables the user to import a SAS program from
any OS platform and convert the program into an interactive data or program
By showing the entire flow of the program visually, you
can get a better understanding of how the program functions. This will
enable an understanding of the intent of the program and the dependencies
between each module within the program without having to read through
the code line by line. The drill down capabilities and the integration
with the Full Featured "SAS® aware" Code Editor will allow
you to quickly examine any part of the program.
||Manually analyze program, execution log, and flow diagrams
to correct errors
||Intelligent editor scans the log file
and highlights existing errors, and matches the error with the corresponding
Intelligent Code Editor - A SAS® programming language
aware editor with features comparable to the SAS® Version 8.x enhanced
editor. It automatically scans the most recent execution log (if available)
associated with the program and highlights the code segment linked with
the warning or error.
|Analyzing Legacy Code and Archived Programs
||Extensive effort required to understand previously developed
||Quickly view and analyze previously developed
Program Visualizer -The Graphical Program Visualizer makes
it easy to identify orphan and redundant code, such as duplicate sorts of
the same dataset. By allowing the user to easily visualize the program data
flow you can optimize performance of your SAS® programs. Coupling this
with other debugging and testing facilities can optimize your programming
|Locating and Sharing SAS® Templates
||Time consuming searches to locate existing SAS® language
Streamlines process to locate, use, and insert code from templates.
SAS® language syntax templates included with the application
Another feature that sets ASAP™ apart from the SAS®
Version 8.x enhanced editor is it's capability to offer you a list of
program templates which you can easily insert into your code.
You can create your own personal templates, access Intranet
based templates or select from the included SAS® language syntax or
Internet sites that offer downloadable SAS® code.
The template can then be "snapped-in" to the
code editor at the point in the data flow chosen by the user. You do not
have to manually research documentation every time to ascertain how to
code a certain function or procedure in SAS®
|ANSI SQL Database Support
||Must use a separate software tool to query and drill down
ANSI SQL data sets.
||Automatic display of table structure,
column structure, sample data set constraints for ANSI SQL data sets. Includes
DB2®, Oracle® & MS SQL®
Database Manager - By default, the Database Manager will
read the ODBC Registry on your workstation (MS SQL Server®, IBM DB2®
ODBC Driver, etc.) and will display all available databases. From here you
can visually drilldown into a specific database.
|Support for Popular SAS®Editors
||No integration between popular editors and Base SAS®.
||Automatically visualize your programs
even when you use an alternative SAS®
editor, such as UltraEdit or K-Edit
Popular Editor Support - Support for the most popular SAS®
editors, including UltraEdit and K-Edit for Windows. We have added linkage
support so that you can continue to use you favorite SAS® editor while
still reaping the benefits of our code Visualizer, automatic execution and
our other patented features.
