Searching in SAS Help is hopeless. This is the main reason I recommend my students use Stata rather than SAS. Some features that would help include:
- Not listing items for products not installed
- Putting commonly searched items at the top. Eg Base SAS first, followed by SAS Stat etc. (eg if I search for 'means' I want proc means to be at the top rather than the myriad of other ways in which this keyword appears in SAS products)
Also, there often cross-references in the text help to other parts of the help system - but these are not hyperlinked.
