That should not be any difference, because SAS uses SYNCSORT also for PROC
SORT, if you have syncsort as external sort utility. PROC SYNCSORT is a
SAS/TOOLKIT prc, which uses the same code as the syncsort utility. Maybe the
parameter passing is easier.

>Has anyone run tests of efficiencies between Proc Syncsort and SAS Proc
Sort on the IBM Z/os system and version 9.1.3 of SAS that they would share?
We are being told that the speeds are now equivalent.
