DATA or PROC step

What does PROC refer to ? PROCEDURE ?
Can you please explain, freq data=weight_club;
Why is there an "=" sign ? Shouldn't it be freq data weight_club;

Hi Vijay,
Procedure are the inbuild methods that are readily available for use.
these procedures can be invoked upon using "proc" keyword and "="sign is the part of the syntax which identifies name of the dataset on which we are performing the operation that needs to be there in order to use proc.
so correct way of writing proc statement would be:
proc frequency data = dataset;
table variable;
run;
