Um, let's see - Tuesday afternoon I seem to remember a pair with
interesting hats - kilovolt and sashole - presenting something like this
in paper 241-31.
data _null_ ;
dcl hash hid (ordered: 'a') ;
hid.definekey ('id', 'sat', '_n_') ;
hid.definedata ('id', 'sat' ) ;
hid.definedone ( ) ;
do until ( last.id ) ;
set sample ;
hid.output (dataset: 'OUT' || put (id, best.-L)) ;
My Jewish step-mom calls me meshuggah whenever I act crazily. Hiragana,
Wikipedia tells me is a Japanese syllabary used when words for which
there are no kanji.
Crazy extra words?
