Key differences between SAS and Racket

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.Racket has a Lisp-like syntax with a focus on functional programming. It uses parentheses extensively for code organization.
ParadigmSAS is primarily a procedural language with support for some object-oriented programming concepts.Racket is a multi-paradigm language that supports functional programming, procedural programming, and object-oriented programming.
TypingSAS is a statically typed language.Racket is a dynamically typed language.
PerformanceSAS is known for its high-performance data processing capabilities.Racket is not typically used for high-performance computing tasks.
Libraries and frameworksSAS has a wide range of libraries and frameworks for data analysis, statistical modeling, and machine learning.Racket has a smaller ecosystem of libraries and frameworks compared to SAS, but it has a strong focus on language extensibility.
Community and supportSAS has a large and established community with extensive documentation and support resources.Racket has a smaller community compared to SAS, but it has an active and supportive community with online forums and documentation.
Learning curveSAS has a steep learning curve due to its complex syntax and extensive feature set.Racket has a moderate learning curve, especially for programmers familiar with Lisp-like languages.
