## Not run: 
## If you haven't got a Spark cluster, you can install Spark locally like this
library(sparklyr)
spark_install(version = "2.0.1")

## Define the SAS .sas7bdat file, connect to the Spark cluster to read + process the data
myfile <- system.file("extdata", "iris.sas7bdat", package = "spark.sas7bdat")
myfile

library(spark.sas7bdat)
sc <- spark_connect(master = "local")
x <- spark_read_sas(sc, path = myfile, table = "sas_example")
x

library(dplyr)
x %>% group_by(Species) %>%
  summarise(count = n(), length = mean(Sepal_Length), width = mean(Sepal_Width))

## End(Not run)
