Code Diary for SAS DOI

An automatic documentation parser for SAS. The main component is Code Diary, which can be used to easily collect and organize comments from source code called from a central main. An extra component is Macro Diary, which can be used to collect special comment blocks from all macros in a common root directory. A bonus component is a rudimentary, incomplete markdown to HTML converter implemented in SAS. This converter is not intended to replace full implementation, but rather to provide a quick visual on systems that do not allow the installation of other software.

Components

Copy the relevant files from the source folder:

  • code_diary.sas for Code Diary
  • macro_diary.sas for Macro Diary
  • convert_markdown_to_html.sas for a rudimentary, incomplete markdown to HTML converter

How to

See the files in the demo folder for example uses. These examples, combined with the documentation in the files themselves, are the user manual.
