SAS/IML Studio

SAS/STAT users may be interested in the new SAS/IML Studio (formerly known as SAS Stat Studio). SAS/IML Studio is a tool for data exploration and analysis; it provides a highly flexible programming environment in which you can run SAS/STAT or SAS/IML analyses and display the results with dynamically linked graphics and data tables. You can also call SAS procedures from a SAS/IML program. SAS/IML Studio is intended for data analysts who write SAS programs to solve statistical problems but need more versatility for data exploration and model building.

The programming language in SAS/IML Studio, which is called IMLPlus, is an enhanced version of the SAS/IML programming language. IMLPlus extends SAS/IML to provide new language features such as the ability to create and manipulate statistical graphics and to call SAS procedures. SAS/IML Studio runs on a PC in the Microsoft Windows operating environment.

SAS/IML Studio also includes an experimental interface to the R language. The IMLPlus language includes functions that transfer data between SAS data sets and R data frames, and between SAS/IML matrices and R matrices.

SAS/IML Studio is distributed with the SAS/IML product and is also intended to be the successor to the SAS/INSIGHT product. For more information about SAS/IML Studio, see the SAS/IML Studio User's Guide and SAS/IML Studio for SAS/STAT Users.
