Abstract

SAS® is a powerful programming system, but it can't do everything. Sometimes you have to go beyond what SAS provides. There are several built-in mechanisms for doing this, and one of the newest is PROC GROOVY. It sounds like a product of San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury, but it's actually a programming language based on another product with San Francisco Bay area roots, Java. You can think of it as a simplified, easier to use version of Java -- simplified enough that you can put together a useful PROC GROOVY program from Internet examples without knowing anything about the language. This presentation focuses on handling directories and ZIP files, but many other things are possible.
