install details
You can simply copy the script file to your ~/.vim/syntax

To make syntax folding work, you would need to add "set foldmethod=syntax" in your vimrc, or "setlocal foldmethod=syntax" in your SAS ftplugin script.

You can find my SAS ftplugin script from here (along with some other stuffs): https://github.com/akanosora/vimfiles/tree/master/ftplugin
