When I hear "SAS animated PowerPoint", I think of Russell Lavery's
excellent series of "Animated Guide" talks. I'd be surprised if you
could find a copy of those on the web. I think he's put enough time
into developing them that he holds them fairly tightly (and rightly
so). But if someone knows differently, please let me know.
In the mean time, I will send you (off-list) my own attempt at doing a
(poorly) animated guide to the PDV. It's really more of an intro to
the datastep. And uses fake animation to show how a data step is
compiled, and the PDV is built, and that during execution the data
step is a loop with an implied output at the bottom, variables created
in a step are initialized at the top of the loop, etc. It's not much,
but might be enough of a start to inspire you to improve on it for
your own needs.
