Since Microsoft Windows applications seldom show conformance
with themselves, which flavour would you prefer?
Within the far richer language of the environment of SAS
any text in the clipboard may be submitted for execution
by issuing the command
So using your own editor, as you prefer it
(do you know all the potential of the SAS text editor?),
then copy the code you wish to submit to the clipboard,
and then issue that gsub command inside SAS.
Doesn't this example demonstrate, that SAS is not trying to
replace your preferred services, but add the functionality
you need and can't get anywhere else!

Peter Crawford wish I'd thought of it before Jim
