### Regularized Discriminant Analysis

Demo SAS implementation of Regularized (Linear) Discriminate Analysis of J. Friedman (1989)[1]. Simpler introduction can be found at [2]. Regularized QDA follows similarly.

To save coding, I called R within SAS to finish the computation. For details to see how to call R within SAS, check here.
