SAS/AF is a development environment that enables you to create portable, point-and-click applications. You can build much of your application visually, using drag-and-drop components, and because SAS/AF applications are stored in SAS catalogs, they are portable to all SAS software platforms.
Included with SAS/AF is SAS Component Language (SCL), an object-oriented programming language that enables you to access and display data, to control interfaces, and to read and write to SAS tables, catalog entries, and external files.
The most current release is SAS/AF 9.4.
