Key differences between SAS and Groovy

SyntaxSAS uses a proprietary syntax that is primarily focused on data manipulation and analysis.Groovy uses a syntax that is similar to Java, with additional features and enhancements.
ParadigmSAS is primarily a procedural language, but it also supports some object-oriented programming concepts.Groovy is a dynamic, object-oriented language that supports both procedural and functional programming paradigms.
TypingSAS is a statically typed language, meaning that variable types are determined at compile-time.Groovy is a dynamically typed language, meaning that variable types are determined at runtime.
PerformanceSAS is known for its high performance in data manipulation and analysis tasks.Groovy is generally slower than languages like Java, but it offers good performance for scripting and automation tasks.
Libraries and frameworksSAS has a wide range of libraries and frameworks for data manipulation, statistical analysis, and machine learning.Groovy has access to the extensive Java ecosystem, including libraries and frameworks for various purposes.
Community and supportSAS has a large and established community with extensive support resources.Groovy has a smaller community compared to languages like Java, but it still has active support and resources available.
Learning curveSAS has a steep learning curve, especially for beginners, due to its proprietary syntax and specialized focus.Groovy has a relatively gentle learning curve, especially for those familiar with Java or similar languages.
