You have several options but none are very elegant:
1) Using the FTP editing features of UltraEdit and then rsubmit ; %inc
'/path/program.sas' /source2 ;
2) From the Unix command line > sas program.sas &
3) If your X Manager was Hummingbird Exceed, then you could try
assigning an FTP directory using Hummingbird Neighbourhood and then adding
it to your SAS Favourite Files. I have had problems with it so beware.
As an aside, you may know these features already - very neat for checking
output datasets through your PC SAS Explorer window :
libname local_libname '/path_to_sasdata/' server=connection_name ;
libname local_libname slibref=remote_libname server=connection_name ;
Unfortunately, these remote libraries cannot access catalogs otherwise your
solution would be simple.

Subject: Exploring UNIX directories within PC SAS
Until recently, we have done all development work on our UNIX server
using Xwindows. Due to speed/response times issues with the GUI, we
are using PC SAS to remote submit code to the UNIX server. This all
works fine, but the icing on the cake would be the ability to use to
'Explorer' in PC SAS to view programs stored on the UNIX server (they
are in multiple directories).
Potentially, I would want to open the code in the Program Editor,
submit/modify the code, then write back to the UNIX server.
Any ideas/suggestions gratefully received.
