Key differences between SAS and Erlang

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.Erlang has a simple and concise syntax with a focus on concurrency and fault-tolerance.
ParadigmSAS is primarily a procedural language with support for some object-oriented programming concepts.Erlang is a functional programming language with a focus on concurrency and fault-tolerance.
TypingSAS is a dynamically typed language.Erlang is a dynamically typed language.
PerformanceSAS is optimized for data manipulation and analysis tasks.Erlang is optimized for building highly concurrent and fault-tolerant systems.
Libraries and frameworksSAS has a wide range of libraries and frameworks for data manipulation, statistical analysis, and machine learning.Erlang has libraries and frameworks for building concurrent and distributed systems.
Community and supportSAS has a large and established community with extensive support resources.Erlang has a smaller but active community with good support resources.
Learning curveSAS has a steep learning curve due to its complex syntax and extensive functionality.Erlang has a moderate learning curve, especially for developers familiar with functional programming.
