ParadigmSAS is primarily a procedural programming language with support for object-oriented programming.CoffeeScript is a functional programming language that also supports object-oriented programming.
TypingSAS is a statically typed language with strong typing.CoffeeScript is a dynamically typed language with weak typing.
PerformanceSAS is optimized for data processing and analysis, providing high performance for these tasks.CoffeeScript compiles into JavaScript, which can have varying performance depending on the JavaScript engine being used.
Libraries and frameworksSAS has a wide range of libraries and frameworks for data manipulation, statistical analysis, and reporting.CoffeeScript leverages the existing JavaScript libraries and frameworks ecosystem.
Community and supportSAS has a large and established community with extensive support resources.CoffeeScript has a smaller community compared to other languages, but still has active support and resources available.
