Print Driver macro system
What is %print?
In March of 1996, I
presented a paper
entitled "%Print Drivers: Teaching SAS to Speak the
Many Languages of Document Publication
Since then I have sent out quite a few copies of the code, which have, in turn
been further dispersed (I know, because I get support questions from people
I've never heard from before that :) At any rate, some 4 years later, I've finally gotten
around to making it easily availible from the web. I had meant to wait until
I had addressed some design issues, and assembled some documentation, but I think
4 years is long enough. It may never get done...
If you already have a copy of %print:
I know that there are number of organizations that are using some
version of this code productively. Many of these versions may include features
that are not even included in the code supplied here. If you are a current
I am making an appeal to you--in the same spirit that the
code was made available in the first place--to share your enhancements, and let
the work you put into it pay off many times over by sharing it with the larger
community. NOTE: This includes any documentation.
About version 0.04:
During development, I had created versions I called "1", "2" and "3". The version
that was distributed was largely version "3", although some enhanced versions went
to clients that had contracted services from STATPROBE
I am renumbering the versions starting with 0.04 to reflect it's somewhat "alpha" nature.
While it is pretty reliable and useable when used correctly, it is somewhat
user-hostile when it is not, and will sometimes return cryptic error messages like "Array
subscript out of range" when you aren't even using arrays...
