I was wondering about that too, but PAD is in the main Language
Dictionary. I didn't have access to Linux to try it, but I assumed from
Sig's response that it was OK syntax-wise, although it didn't give him
the desired result (which makes sense since the problem seems to be the
stray control character).

I think you want to squint carefully at the SAS documentation on infile
iirc pad is a Windows (only?) option for the infile statement.
