If you miss the syntax coloring provided by winXX sas enhanced editor
issue command syncolor in the program editor (or any other editor)
You should get color support for invalid keywords, broken quoted strings,
plus many other features
these may be discovered and configured via the synconfig command
There are many other features in the enhanced editor
that have not yet made it to the regular editors, but
just highlighting unbalanced quotes and comment blocks
is a very major step in the right direction.
I recommend it to you

Rich welcome aboard; isn't Unix a gas?!?!? As you have found out, there
_ARE_ some differences with the behavior of the SAS Display Manager under
Unix, as opposed to Windows. But, a after a little bit of playing around
will not even notice them. Here is my take on your questions.
1. Position your cursor to line 6. Click on EDIT on the top Menu Bar, and
then click on SELECT. With your cursor or keys, highlight lines 6 through
10. Click on EDIT on the top Menu Bar (again) and this time select COPY.
Now simply click on RUN on the top Menu Bar and then click on SUBMIT
CLIPBOARD. You are then good-to-go, your selected lines have been
submitted! (You will also see the SUBMIT N LINES option in the RUN
drop-down menu. This might also be of help to you).
2. This is a question for the SAS Institute's "SAS in the Unix Environment"
development team. Unfortunately, it is the default behavior on Unix, which
has a "Program Editor", but not an "Enhanced Editor" like Windows. (We are,
of course, talking about SAS 8.2 on Unix and on Windows). I find it helpful
to have a PF key coded to recall my program in the Program Editor window.
So, I have PF12 coded this way: clear log;clear output;program;recall; Once
I have perused my SAS Output window (because I never make programming
mistakes, I never need to peruse the SAS Log), I simply hit PF12 to get my
Rich, best of luck to you as you get your SAS applications up and running in
that trickiest of operating environments that we call: Unix!
I hope that this suggestion proves helpful now, and in the future!
