Substantial quantities of code can be difficult to navigate, debug and manage if poorly planned and laid out. Therefore, when starting a program anew or taking over previously established code it is imperative that extra effort is made to make the code straightforward and easy to understand for not only yourself but anyone who may inherit the code from you in the future. This blog will explore techniques and best practices to achieve this in your SAS® programs, whether starting with existing code or from scratch. Focus will be on larger SAS programs and how they can be accessible and reusable to developers of any level, including and going beyond the traditional standard good programming practices to delve into more advanced techniques and ideas for good program management. Techniques include using SAS functions and procedures to provide summaries and critical information for navigation and debugging of code.
