Subject: Re: html to SAS to html --is that possible?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
I have created a product that I'm calling SAS Server Pages. Initially, the product was a simple test of the ability of SAS to communicate with a CGI program. Fueled by a few very interested parties, I have made the product into a viable alternative to SAS/Intrnet, duplicating the functionality SAS/Intrnet provides in running batch SAS programs on the same computer as the web server. In the future, depending on the support or sales received, I would consider developing the other capabilities of SAS/Intrnet that involve cross machine communication and load balancing, if there was a desire/need.
This product will allow you to run Base/SCL programs in the same manner as SAS/Intrnet but for a LOT less money.
There is no web site or public documentation available yet, but if you are interested, email me privately.
