The MULTTEST Procedure |

PROC MULTTEST keeps all of the data in memory to expedite resampling. A large portion of the memory requirement is thus 8*NOBS*NVAR bytes, where NOBS is the number of observations in the data set, and NVAR is the number of variables analyzed, including CLASS, FREQ, and STRATA variables.

If you specify PERMUTATION=*number* (for exact
permutation distributions), then PROC MULTTEST requires
additional memory. This requirement is approximately
4*NTEST*NSTRATA*CMAX**number**(*number*+1) bytes,
where NTEST is the number of contrasts, NSTRATA is the
number of STRATA levels, and CMAX is the maximum contrast
coefficient.

The execution time is linear in the number of resamples.
