Key differences between SAS and Elm

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.Elm has a clean and concise syntax inspired by Haskell. It is a functional programming language with a strong focus on immutability.
ParadigmSAS is primarily a procedural programming language with support for object-oriented programming.Elm is a purely functional programming language that encourages immutable data and declarative programming.
TypingSAS has dynamic typing, meaning that variable types are determined at runtime.Elm has static typing, meaning that variable types are checked at compile-time.
PerformanceSAS is optimized for data processing and analysis, and it performs well in those areas.Elm is designed for front-end web development and focuses on providing a smooth user experience.
Libraries and frameworksSAS has a wide range of libraries and frameworks for data analysis, statistics, and machine learning.Elm has a smaller ecosystem compared to SAS, but it has libraries and frameworks for building web applications.
Community and supportSAS has a large and established community with extensive documentation and support resources.Elm has a smaller community compared to SAS, but it has an active and helpful community.
Learning curveSAS has a steep learning curve due to its complex syntax and extensive functionality.Elm has a moderate learning curve, especially for developers familiar with functional programming concepts.
