Designer Graphics - Anatomy of some SAS macros for Statistical Graphics
For statistical graphics--where the goal is to gain
insight into the data--SAS/GRAPH procedures alone
often do not go far
enough in providing the tools for the most effective visual
In these cases, other SAS facilities, including the macro language,
PROC GREPLAY, and SAS/IML provide the basis for constructing
custom graphic displays.
This paper, presented at the
SUGI 20 Conference, April, 1995,
describes some useful graphic displays which cannot
be produced by the basic SAS/GRAPH procedures, and shows how they
can be constructed by general macro programs, applicable
to any dataset.

The paper describes SAS tools for developing custom graphic displays
and illustrates the use of these to:
