I am pleased to announce that the documentation for the IMLPlus language is now available online. Previously, this resource was available only from within the SAS/IML Studio application. This documentation can now be accessed by anyone, regardless of whether they have installed SAS/IML Studio.
As I have described previously, IMLPlus is an enhanced version of the SAS/IML programming language that includes the ability to create and manipulate dynamically linked statistical graphs. You can use the IMLPlus language from within SAS/IML Studio, which is a free application that is distributed as part of the SAS/IML product.
I have been writing this blog for 2.5 years, but I have written only a few articles about IMLPlus, in part because I was unable to link to the IMLPlus language documentation. Now that there is an online version of the IMLPlus class reference, expect an occasional article that demonstrates features of this rich and powerful extension to the SAS/IML computational language.
If you would like to explore the IMLPlus programming language, first check whether SAS/IML Studio is installed on your Windows PC. To get started with IMLPlus, you can work through the examples in SAS/IML Studio for SAS/STAT Programmers. If you have my book, Statistical Programming with SAS/IML Software, I discuss IMLPlus programming techniques in Chapters 5–10.
