Key differences between SAS and Ada

SyntaxSAS uses a data step and a proc step to process data. It has a verbose syntax with a focus on data manipulation and analysis.Ada has a more structured and strict syntax. It is designed for safety-critical systems and emphasizes readability and maintainability.
ParadigmSAS is primarily a procedural language with some support for object-oriented programming.Ada is a strongly-typed, statically-typed, and modular language that supports both procedural and object-oriented programming paradigms.
TypingSAS is dynamically typed, meaning that variable types are determined at runtime.Ada is statically typed, meaning that variable types are checked at compile-time.
PerformanceSAS is optimized for data manipulation and analysis, and it performs well in those areas.Ada is designed for high-performance and safety-critical systems, and it can be highly optimized for performance.
Libraries and frameworksSAS has a wide range of libraries and frameworks for data manipulation, statistical analysis, and reporting.Ada has a smaller ecosystem of libraries and frameworks compared to SAS, but it has libraries for various domains such as real-time systems and safety-critical applications.
Community and supportSAS has a large and active community with extensive support resources, including documentation, forums, and training.Ada has a smaller community compared to SAS, but it has dedicated support from AdaCore and a community of developers who are passionate about the language.
Learning curveSAS has a relatively steep learning curve due to its specialized syntax and focus on data manipulation and analysis.Ada has a moderate learning curve, especially for developers with experience in other statically-typed languages. Its strict syntax and safety features require some initial effort to learn.
