I would describe - for a newbie - XTerm is pretty simply a X-Windows Telnet program. X-Windows allows (when properly setup at both ends) allows (in this example) SAS to open and use Windows on the User System. If you only operate in Batch mode - you may never use or need these capabilities. (Typically you don't in batch. However, you can create Batch jobs that pop open User interface Windows (X-Windows) to interact with the User. I've used that feature to prompt for User Passwords / Database Name / and program code options (Report #1, #2) / Complete like = or IN clauses, etc.)
