Do you mean the enhanced editor in the Display Manager? The original editor in the Display Manager? An external editor that speaks SAS, like Ultra-Edit?

unix is not really known for user-friendly tools. (Jerry Pournelle once, at ComDex, said that he wanted everyone to switch to unix because his son was working as a unix consultant and that way his son would never be out of business when helping people with the 'user-hostile' operating system. :-)

But you might look at Emacs with ESS (Emacs Speaks Statistics). You might need to spend some time customizing it to get it the way you want...

And now, another quote:

"Emacs? No thanks, I already *have* an operating system." - Tom Christiansen
