You need to use a different version of the editcmd invocation for vi in
an X Windows environment, unless you're using an X-aware vi clone such
The full editcmd is specified in the SAS companion for the Unix
environment, and requires invoking a terminal from which to run the
editor in. Something like:
sas -editcmd <terminal> -e /usr/bin/vi
...where <terminal> is your xterm program of choice.
