Key differences between SAS and Scheme

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.Scheme has a simple and minimalistic syntax with a focus on functional programming. It uses parentheses for function calls and has a prefix notation.
ParadigmSAS is primarily a procedural programming language with support for data manipulation and analysis.Scheme is a functional programming language that emphasizes immutability and recursion. It also supports procedural and object-oriented programming.
TypingSAS is a statically typed language with implicit type conversion.Scheme is a dynamically typed language with support for strong typing.
PerformanceSAS is optimized for data manipulation and analysis tasks. It provides efficient processing of large datasets.Scheme is not optimized for performance-intensive tasks. It focuses more on expressiveness and simplicity.
Libraries and frameworksSAS has a wide range of libraries and frameworks for data manipulation, statistical analysis, and reporting.Scheme has a smaller ecosystem of libraries and frameworks compared to SAS. It is often used in academic and research settings.
Community and supportSAS has a large and established community with extensive documentation and support resources.Scheme has a smaller community compared to SAS. It is primarily used in academic and research communities.
Learning curveSAS has a moderate learning curve. It requires understanding of its specific syntax and concepts related to data manipulation and analysis.Scheme has a steep learning curve for beginners due to its unique syntax and functional programming concepts.
