YeahBut, you don't wanna go there, because SAS is not written to support
you'll end up spending more time doing workarounds.
RTFM on SAS functions. There are a whole bunch of round flat things, with
holes in the middle -- also known as 'wheels' -- already invented by SI.
Imagine our surprise! LOL
You'll quickly run into the machine limits of register usage, nesting
all kinds of majorly geek reasons NOT to go there.
But if pressed I could dig out my fibonacci programs.
which are kludges, at best.
take a look at the SAS Toolkit.
