Key differences between SAS and Python

SyntaxSAS has a verbose syntax that requires more code to accomplish tasks.Python has a concise and readable syntax that allows for faster development.
ParadigmSAS is primarily a procedural language with some object-oriented features.Python is a multi-paradigm language that supports procedural, object-oriented, and functional programming.
TypingSAS is a statically typed language.Python is a dynamically typed language.
PerformanceSAS is optimized for data processing and has good performance for large datasets.Python is slower than SAS for large datasets but has good performance for scientific computing and machine learning.
Libraries and frameworksSAS has a comprehensive set of built-in libraries for data processing and analysis.Python has a vast ecosystem of libraries and frameworks for data science, machine learning, web development, and more.
Community and supportSAS has a smaller community and limited open-source support.Python has a large and active community with extensive open-source support.
Learning curveSAS has a steeper learning curve due to its verbose syntax and proprietary nature.Python has a relatively low learning curve due to its concise syntax, extensive documentation, and large community.
