The ENTROPY Procedure (Experimental)

ODS Graphics

Statistical procedures use ODS Graphics to create graphs as part of their output. ODS Graphics is described in detail in Chapter 21: Statistical Graphics Using ODS in SAS/STAT 12.1 User's Guide.

Before you create graphs, ODS Graphics must be enabled (for example, with the ODS GRAPHICS ON statement). For more information about enabling and disabling ODS Graphics, see the section Enabling and Disabling ODS Graphics in that chapter.

The overall appearance of graphs is controlled by ODS styles. Styles and other aspects of using ODS Graphics are discussed in the section A Primer on ODS Statistical Graphics in that chapter.

This section describes the use of ODS for creating graphics with the ENTROPY procedure.

ODS Graph Names

PROC ENTROPY assigns a name to each graph it creates using ODS. You can use these names to reference the graphs when using ODS. The names are listed in Table 13.2.

To request these graphs, you must specify the ODS GRAPHICS statement.
