saslib is an HTML report generator to lookup the metadata (or the head information) like PROC CONTENTS in SAS.
- It reads the sas7bdat files directly and quickly, and does not need SAS installed.
- Emulate PROC CONTENTS by jQuery and DataTables.
- Extract the meta data from all SAS7bdat files under the specified directory.
- Support IE(>=10), firefox, chrome and any other modern browser.
pip install saslib
The module is very simple to use. For example, the SAS data sets under the SASHELP library could be viewed —
from saslib import PROCcontents sasdata = PROCcontents('c:/Program Files/SASHome/SASFoundation/9.3/core/sashelp') sasdata.show()
The resulting HTML file from the codes above will be like here.
