### How to use this tool?

This free online converter lets you convert code from SAS to Matlab in a click of a button. To use this converter, take the following steps -

- Type or paste your SAS code in the input box.
- Click the convert button.
- The resulting Matlab code from the conversion will be displayed in the output box.

### Examples

The following are examples of code conversion from SAS to Matlab using this converter. Note that you may not always get the same code since it is generated by an AI language model which is not 100% deterministic and gets updated from time to time.

Example 1 - Is String Palindrome

Program that checks if a string is a palindrome or not.

SAS

Matlab

Example 2 - Even or Odd

A well commented function to check if a number if odd or even.

### Key differences between SAS and Matlab

Characteristic | SAS | Matlab |
---|---|---|

Syntax | SAS uses a data step and a proc step to process data. The data step is used to read, manipulate, and output data, while the proc step is used to perform statistical analyses and generate reports. | Matlab uses a scripting language that is similar to other programming languages, with a focus on numerical computations and data analysis. |

Paradigm | SAS is primarily a procedural programming language, with some support for object-oriented programming. | Matlab is a high-level programming language that supports both procedural and object-oriented programming paradigms. |

Typing | SAS is a statically typed language, meaning that variable types are determined at compile time. | Matlab is a dynamically typed language, meaning that variable types are determined at runtime. |

Performance | SAS is optimized for handling large datasets and can handle complex statistical analyses efficiently. | Matlab is optimized for numerical computations and can handle large matrices and arrays efficiently. |

Libraries and frameworks | SAS has a large number of built-in statistical procedures and libraries for data manipulation and analysis. | Matlab has a large number of built-in functions and toolboxes for numerical computations, data analysis, and visualization. |

Community and support | SAS has a large and active community of users and developers, with extensive documentation and support resources. | Matlab has a large and active community of users and developers, with extensive documentation and support resources. |

Learning curve | SAS has a steep learning curve, with a complex syntax and a focus on statistical analysis and data manipulation. | Matlab has a moderate learning curve, with a relatively simple syntax and a focus on numerical computations and data analysis. |
