Understanding the basic concepts of character encoding is necessary for creating, manipulating, and rendering any type of character data. An encoding is involved whenever data is brought into SAS from various external sources; whenever data is transferred between SAS applications running different locales or across the network via thin clients; and when output is written to external files, SAS data sets, printers, or Web pages. In each of these cases, something can go wrong. It is the encoderĹs responsibility to ensure that the data is stored, processed, and rendered in the correct encoding. Manfred Kiefer's SAS Encoding: Understanding the Details explains the basic concepts of characters, encodings, glyphs, and fonts and gives practical examples of how to troubleshoot encoding problems. Addressed to the beginner as well as to the advanced SAS user, this book can help solve your encoding problems. It provides background information about encodings, shows how they are used with SAS software, and explains typical problems and ways to sort those out. It also presents examples of how to set up SAS software in an international environment.
