Introduction, SAS, viewing files
You should read the SAS Introductory Guide and familiarize yourself with
using SAS on the Faculty network. This will help you learn how to :
a) read a file of data and SAS statements into the Program Editor window.
b) save the output and log window results.
Learn how to use the HTML viewer (what you are using to read this !!)
(Firefox,IE et al) to browse these documents, print them, save
them to a file so that you can take out the SAS data and code from examples
to run through SAS for yourself and see the results.
Look at the various SAS examples and code and familiarise yourself with
the meaning of each SAS statement (in PROC REG, PROC IML, PROC MEANS,
PROC UNIVARIATE and PROC GLM).
Manuals for SAS for the main PROCedures and language statements are
available and On-Line.
- SAS Introductory Guide
- SAS Language and Procedures

- SAS/IML (Interactive Matrix Language)

- SAS/STAT PROCedure GENMOD (Generalised Linear Models)

These techniques will subsequently aid you in 'surfing' the Internet/World
Wide Web; if you are not already doing so.
