linear and non linear combinations of previous estimated

Does anyone know if there exists any function in SAS that resembles the
"lincom" and "nlcom" of STATA?. These functions computes point
estimates, standard errors, significance levels, confidence intervals,
etc. for linear and non linear combinations of previous estimated
parameters. Down here you've got links to descriptions of the functions of STATA

Re: linear and non linear combinations of previous estimated

For linear combinations of parameters, you can use the PLM procedure available with SAS version 9.22. For nonlinear combinations of the parameters, I think you would have to construct IML code for your specific problem.

You could estimate nonlinear (or linear) combinations of parameters using the PREDICT statement in PROC NLMIXED if you fit the model in that procedure.
