Glad to find this site and much thanks for %seplist. I particularly appreciate that this macro is cleanly coded and has integral test code.

Hello Richard,
I have for many years now been using your fantastic FINDFILES-macro, thank you.
Now we have upgraded til 64 bit, and the macro does not work anymore.
Do you by any chance have a 64-bit version of the macro ?

Great site. I was racking my brains trying to get this right for a pool league, my 1st time setting everything up. Just wish I could download into Excel so I could get roster printed out. Thanks for all your hard work

Hi Richard,

You are an amazing person and great help to SAS community. Can't thank you enough. There are few people who take time out to help others and you are one of those few.

Have a great weekend, wish you all the best.

Warm regards..

Round Robin logic was really helpful. Thanks!

First time the logics of a round-robin came clear to me. Thanks a lot.

Very useful site. Your scheduling work saved our gourmet group a bunch of time trying to schedule dinners.

Hey Rich, I have finally found a minute to tell you this site of yours does a really poor job at its maladroit attempt of failing to avoid being uncool! Keep up miserably failing to suck! - Paul

Thanks for the regexp for parsing an apache log entry, it's saved me some work. Here's an slightly different version.

[variable declarations here]
  = /^(\S+) (\S+) (\S+) \[(.+)\] \"(.+)\" (\S+) (\S+) \"([^"]*)\" \"([^"]*)\"/o;

compare to = /^(\S+) (\S+) (\S+) \[(.+)\] \"(.+)\" (\S+) (\S+) \"(.*)\" \"(.*)\"/o;

Nice site, btw :)

The day after I found your site I announced to my co-workers that I had found the holy grail of tournament scheduling. Your tables have saved me hours of work. I am the administrator at a summer youth camp, and each week I have to schedule a camp wide volleyball tournament among our 42 camper cabins. Since I found your site I can knock out the pairings in about twenty minutes taking into account all kinds of variables - empty cabins, more guy cabins than girl cabins, etc. THANKS!

Thank you for sharing your knowledge with people. You must be one intelligent guy. The website is very well organized and I am keen to spend some serious time here while I hone my skills.

I just used your excel-multisheet macro (a different sample). I have no idea how it works, but it does exactly what I want it to do. Thank you very much!

I just read your response to my posting on SAS-L regarding apache log files. Your solution was much more robust than mine, and I co-opted yours -- thanks. Also, after going to your website, I realized I saw you speak at SUGI 29 on using JavaObj. I wanted to tell you that I enjoyed that talk as well.

Richard, You have done a magnificent job. This website is very informative and the "Best Site" I had ever come across for SAS. I saved your webpage in my favorites. Thanks a Lot!

Not sure at all how I originally got it, but your program worked like a charm on the Census Bureau 1990 data files available only as dbf files. Saved me a ton of work. Thanks for the little proggie.

Thanks! I used your delabel macro. It worked like a charm.

Just browsing through, looks to be very useful. I will sit with it quite often in coming days.

Good work on the ODS in footnote.
Since I was writing static pages, I incorporated some code to clean the 's after the page was created, but I may use the Javascript idea on other pages.

Again, many thanks.

Excellent Site. I've found many useful programs and modules.
