There have been several fairly general bootstrapping programs written
in SAS. The simplest I've seen is in the JSE SAS file archive at
Pat Thompson had another in last year's SUGI proceedings, Charlie
Hallahan had a SAS/IML version in the Sage book edited by John Fox and
Bob Stine, Statistical Computing Environments (not the exact title).
The most general one is the JACKBOOT.SAS program from SAS Inst, available
in the techsup/download/stat directory (FTP: ftp.sas.com). You supply
a %analyze macro which does whatever analysis you want, and it
bootstraps or jackknifes the analysis over the data.
