The StatRep package is a LaTeX package that provides two environments and
two tags that work together to display your SAS code and results and to
generate the SAS program that produces those results. The two environments
(Datastep and Sascode) display SAS code. The two tags (Listing and Graphic)
display SAS output.
The generated SAS program includes calls to macros that use the SAS
Output Delivery System (ODS) document to capture the output as external files.
These SAS macros are included in this package (statrep_macros.sas).
The package is available in two locations:
The distribution(statrep.zip) consists of the following files:
README.txt (this file)
statrep_macros.sas SAS macro file
statrep_tagset.sas SAS tagset and style for LaTeX tabular output
statrepmanual.pdf StatRep Package User's Guide (pdf)
statrepmanual.tex StatRep Package User's Guide (source)
quickstart.tex Example and tutorial LaTeX file
statrep.dtx Package source file
statrep.ins Install file (for MikTeX Users)
Unzip the file statrep.zip to a temporary directory and
perform the following steps:
Step 1: Install the StatRep SAS Macros
Copy the file statrep_macros.sas to a local directory. If you have a
folder where you keep your personal set of macros, copy the file
there. Otherwise, create a directory such as C:\mymacros and copy
the file into that directory.
Step 2: Install the StatRep LaTeX Package
If you are working with the MikTeX distribution on Windows and it is
configured to download and install packages automatically, you can
skip this step. Otherwise, see these instructions for installing
packages for MikTeX:
The following instructions show how to install the StatRep package in the
TeXLive LaTeX distribution for your personal use. If you maintain a
system-wide LaTeX distribution and you want to make StatRep
available to all users, see more detailed information about how
to install LaTeX packages at
Determine the location that LaTeX uses to load packages. From a
command-line prompt, give the following command:
The command will return the root directory name in which LaTeX can
find your personally installed packages.
Create the directory if it does not exist and create the additional
Your directory tree will have the following structure:
root directory/ (given by kpsewhich command in 2a)
Copy the files statrep.dtx, statrepmanual.pdf, and statrepmanual.tex to
the statrep subdirectory. Your directory tree will have the following structure:
root directory/ (given by kpsewhich command in 2a)
Change to the statrep directory and give the following command:
The command creates several files, one of which is the configuration
Step 3: Let the StatRep Package Know the Location of the StatRep SAS Macros
Edit the statrep.cfg file generated in Step 2d so that the macro SRmacropath contains
the correct location of the macro file from step 1. For example, if
you copied the statrep_macros.sas file to a directory named 'C:\mymacros',
then you define macro \SRmacropath as follows:
Note the use of the forward slash in the definition. Use the forward slash
as the directory name delimiter instead of the backslash, which is a special
character in LaTeX.
You can now test and experiment with the package. Create a working
directory and copy the file quickstart.tex into it.
To generate the quickstart document:
1) Compile the document with pdfLaTeX. You can use a LaTeX-aware
editor such as TeXworks or use the command-line command 'pdflatex'.
This step generates the SAS program that is needed to produce the results.
2) Execute the SAS program quickstart_SR.sas, which was automatically
created in the preceding step. This step generates the SAS
results that are requested in the quickstart document.
3) Recompile the document with pdfLaTeX. This step compiles the
quickstart document to PDF, this time including the SAS results
that are generated in the preceding step.
You might need to repeat this step so that LaTeX can re-
measure the listing outputs to ensure that they are framed properly.
Notes: You can make changes to the file with a LaTeX-aware editor
or with any plain-text editor such as NotePad or emacs.
You can read the StatRep User's Guide for complete usage details.
It is included in the file statrepmanual.pdf that you copied
in the installation step 2d.
To uninstall the package, delete the statrep directory that you created
in the installation step 2d and remove the SAS macro file statrep_macros.sas
that you copied in Installation step 1.
StatRep now includes limited support for SAS ODS LaTeX output.
