A long time ago I figured out how to write functions for SAS using SAS/Toolkit. It was not a straightforward process and not very useful. In fact, someone recently asked me about it and I was unable to share much useful info. However, I did find proc FCMP which does look to be very useful-- if you're into writing your own functions, that is!

Here is some online info:

If you have SAS 9.1 you can use it to write functions that can be used in some
procedures, but not within the data step. However, if you have SAS 9.2 you can use them in a data step. And it uses data step syntax so you don't have to know C!
