I run SAS batch jobs in TextPad all the time. I have the
extension SAS set to open in TextPad. I use TextPad configure
menu to set this. Then under RUN, fill in the dialog box. If
you want SAS options they go on the line named "Parameters".
$file - to say this file
-config "your config" - to specify the config file
The log and listing by default go to the same directory as the
program and I have the default directory follow the data set, so
it is easy to locate the parts and keep them open and flip back
and forth making changes when required. You can add keys to make
everything work that way, but I find the basic default apparatus
serves quite well.

The only drawback is that this method also opens a "Program
(as well as opening $FILE in the advanced editor). Is there a dm
any other method to automatically close the program editor
window? Or are
there any other ways to open the current file in an editor with
