Key differences between SAS and C++

SyntaxSAS uses a data step and a proc step to read, manipulate, and analyze data. The syntax is verbose and requires a lot of typing.C++ has a concise syntax that allows for more efficient coding. It uses semicolons to end statements and curly braces to define code blocks.
ParadigmSAS is primarily a procedural language, but it also supports some object-oriented programming concepts.C++ is a multi-paradigm language that supports procedural, object-oriented, and generic programming.
TypingSAS is a dynamically typed language, meaning that variable types are determined at runtime.C++ is a statically typed language, meaning that variable types are determined at compile time.
PerformanceSAS is optimized for data manipulation and analysis, making it a good choice for large datasets.C++ is a high-performance language that can be used for a wide range of applications, including system programming and game development.
Libraries and frameworksSAS has a large number of built-in functions and libraries for data manipulation and analysis.C++ has a wide range of libraries and frameworks for various applications, including Boost, Qt, and OpenGL.
Community and supportSAS has a smaller community compared to other languages, but it has a dedicated user base and good support from SAS Institute.C++ has a large and active community with many online resources and support forums.
Learning curveSAS has a steep learning curve due to its verbose syntax and complex data manipulation functions.C++ has a steep learning curve due to its complex syntax and low-level programming concepts.
