Key differences between SAS and Crystal

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.Crystal has a syntax similar to Ruby, with a focus on simplicity and readability. It uses a combination of static and dynamic typing.
ParadigmSAS is primarily a procedural language with some support for object-oriented programming.Crystal is a statically-typed, object-oriented language with support for metaprogramming.
TypingSAS is dynamically typed, meaning variable types are determined at runtime.Crystal is statically typed, meaning variable types are checked at compile-time.
PerformanceSAS is known for its high performance in data processing and analysis.Crystal is a compiled language that aims to provide high performance similar to C or C++.
Libraries and frameworksSAS has a wide range of libraries and frameworks for data analysis, statistics, and machine learning.Crystal has a growing ecosystem of libraries and frameworks, but it may not have as many options as more established languages.
Community and supportSAS has a large and active community with extensive documentation and support resources.Crystal has a smaller community compared to more popular languages, but it is growing and has active community forums and documentation.
Learning curveSAS has a steep learning curve due to its complex syntax and extensive functionality.Crystal has a relatively low learning curve, especially for developers familiar with Ruby or similar languages.
