SAS Download

SAS coding languages

The SAS is coded in C++, Fortran 95, Perl and Python. SAS 19.1 was built on GNU C/C++/Fortran 9.2.0 on 64-bit Intel CPUs, regardless of the compiler version included natively in the building Operating System.

SAS Perl tasks were built on Perl 5.30.1 which required the installation of some additional modules not included with Perl 5.30.1 code (for more details look here).

SAS Python tasks were built on Python 3.8.2 together with some additional Python packages (for a list of these packages and full details on the SAS Python environment, please look here).

For the time being, the SAS is distributed only in binary form. We do not provide yet any support on building SAS from source code.

Which SAS should I take?

Before downloading any of the packages shown in the Table included below, please consider the following tips to help you choose the most suitable for your Operating System:

  • The package built on CentOS 7.3 can be used successfully on any other Linux Operating System, including the latest versions CentOS 8 and Red Hat 7 and 8 but not on Red Hat 6.X.
  • The package built on Ubuntu 18.04LTS can be used successfully on any other later version of Ubuntu like Ubuntu 20.04LTS (this version has been used to make the VM4SAS19.1; see below) or Ubuntu 20.10. The package can be used as well on recent releases of other Linux distributions like Fedora 32, OpenSuSE Leap 15.2, etc.
  • The package built on macOS 10.15.7 (Catalina) can be used as well on macOS 10.14.X (Mojave) and macOS 11.3.1 (Big Sur)on both, Intel and M1 processors.
  • The package VM4SAS19.1 might be the best choice if you do not have access to a Linux or macOS system, e.g. you have a Windows laptop. But even having such systems at hand, VM4SAS19.1 includes all what you need to work with SAS without having to install anything (for more details look here).


To download the build of your choice, please click on the link provided in the column File to download on the Tables below.
