We sell a Commercial Parser for the SAS language
A ready-to-go solution!
Why buy a commercial parser? In some cases, there are open-source parsers available, so why consider buying a commercial parser?
Depending on your situation, you may need a parser that has been thoroughly tested and documented and there is someone to call in case you encounter any problems.
We create and distribute a commercial off-the-shelf SAS parser.
You may want to buy a Commercial Parser to have a parser ready for the integration, without any technical complexity and easy to integrate. A ready-to-go SAS parser.
Three reasons to buy:
SAS is a language that has been used extensively for decades.
Nowadays, billions of lines composing extremely valuable software are defined in SAS.
There are several operations you may want to perform on your SAS code, which our SAS parser might help you with. Let’s discover them:
How to use a parser to build these applications?
You may want to build these applications processing SAS code specifically for your needs, considering the specificities of your codebase. By acquiring this complete SAS parser you can focus right away on building your specific code-processing logic.
These applications could be built by your team. If you need it we can offer design support, training, and coaching. Or you can work with us or with any third party you choose to work with.
Now, you may build each of these applications in multiple languages. For example, you want to build your transpiler in Python, and maybe your editor in TypeScript.
Here is the reason why we decide to build our industrial-grade parser for SAS.

What does it matter in a parser?
We have built tens of parsers for our clients, wrote books and created video courses, wrote hundreds of articles and given presentations on multiple continents and we have learned some things which are important in a parser, to support what our clients want to build with them.
Our parsers provide an Abstract Syntax Tree (AST), not a Parse Tree. This may sound like some academic term just thrown out to appear smart. It is not. The difference is that the output of our parsers is more high-level and easier to work with and we think this could be relevant to you as well.
We provide AST libraries to process the output of our parsers. They permit you to work with the tree more easily to accomplish your goals. We know that as we have built interpreters, editors, compilers, transpilers, and other tools using those libraries, so we built them as tools we needed to use in our work.
Error recovery: our parsers can deal with errors in code and recover, to build an AST. This is important for applications that need to process also incorrect code. This is always the case for editors, for example, as the user is constantly writing code and until they are finished the code is typically incorrect.
Strumenta Playground is the place where you can evaluate online the parsers that we build. You can choose among a number of open-source examples source files and look at the output of the parser for that file – an AST (Abstract Syntax Tree) representing the logical structure of the input file (and not just the grammatical decomposition of the source into keywords, identifiers, punctuation and other elements).
Frequently Asked Questions
Under which conditions do you offer the parser?
We provide a commercial license. You will get access to the documentation, tests, and build scripts used to develop the parser itself. You can choose a Standard License or a Distribution License. Included with it, you will also get our support. During the support period, we will fix any possible bug you encounter. After the first period of support, we will be able to provide more support, if you wish, with our guarantee & support packages, which will ensure our support and the new releases of the tool.
How can I evaluate it?
We created a web application specifically to let you test the parser. You will have the possibility to navigate a list of pre-defined examples and see the corresponding AST produced. The web application will render the AST and let you navigate it so that you can more easily familiarize yourself with the AST produced.
The application is called Strumenta Playground. You can navigate a set of examples and examine the output the parser produces for those examples.

Anything else you could help me with?
Typically our clients buy a parser to use as part of larger systems. Sometimes they have all the internal skills they need to integrate the parser into their systems; in some cases, they ask us for training courses, support with the architectural design, or the implementation of the entire system. We are specialists in Language Engineering and can offer all these supporting services to ensure you reach your goals.
