Graphic Printing

SAS/GRAPH software supports any graphics printer that has a Microsoft Windows device driver available. This support is provided via the WINPRTM (for monochrome printers), WINPRTG (for printers that support gray-scale shading), and WINPRTC (for color printers) device drivers.

As an alternative to WINPRTx series of drivers, SAS/GRAPH native device drivers are available for all Hewlett-Packard printers (and compatibles) and printers that support PostScript, HP-GL, HP PCL, and other printer languages.

Plotters

SAS/Graph software supports any plotter that has a Microsoft Windows plotter driver available. This support is provided via the WINPLOT device driver.

As an alternative to the WINPLOT device driver, SAS/GAPH software also provides native device drivers for all HP plotters supporting HP-GL or HP-GL/2 and plotters from other manufacturers that support the HP-GL or HP-GL/2 language. SAS/GRAPH software also supports Houston Instruments plotters using the DMPL language and ZETA plotters that support the GML language.

Web Browser

A Web browser is required to use two features of the SAS System

  1. viewing output rendered as HTML pages and
  2. using the online help system which is HTML-based.

This Web browser must be Internet Explorer, Version 5 or Netscape Navigator Version 4.07 or later. The use of Internet Explorer is strongly recommended.

An installable version of Internet Explorer, Version 5 is included with Release 8.1. If SAS Setup detects that Internet Explorer, Version 5 is not already installed, it will prompt the user to accept its installation. The installation of this Web browser will update certain Microsoft system files and greatly reduce the number of reboots required during the remainder of the installation of the SAS System. Installation of this Web browser will not change the default Web browser settings. It can co-exist with Netscape and other Web browsers that may be on your system.

If you are using an older version of Internet Explorer as your default browser, you will notice a change to your system. In this case, Internet Explorer is upgraded to Version 5.
