Reuse.2 variables and constants in the global symbol table
In this webinar we will review the design concepts of centralization and standardization and see how, and where, SAS® software and its macro language offers support of those ideas. At the end of the seminar programmers will have three files: sas.cmd, sasv9.cfg and autoexec.sas which are key to batch processing for Test-Driven Development (TDD) in any of their projects. Topics covered include basic overview of development of reusable programs into parameterized %includes and then into macros; style guide; unit testing; startup and setup of project folders
Purpose: brief introduction to design of reusable programs and macros
