sas input statment


It Goes To The Beginning Of The Next Line.

a: Sas input statment ~
b: a carriage return

What: I was learning SAS this fine year of 13. The input statement is probably the most complicated aspect of basic SAS programing. Within it are a multitude of ways to access and format data that need to be read into a SAS dataset. One one to think of an input statement is to compare it to a carriage return on a type writer, assuming you know what that is. By default, the input statment returns the pointer to the the first column @1, of the next record being read. This is very close to what a carrige return on an old type writer does, or did.
