A Gentle Reader, who wishes to remain anonymous,
provides the following commentary:
On SAS-L you mentioned you don't have any version control software.
IF you are on a Windows box,
check out CS-RCS (Basic version)
by Component Software.
It's free for single-workstation use.
It uses GNU-RCS as the back end.
I have found it a lifesaver
when rewriting code and needing to retrieve older versions.
They also have a free diff tool
that is very handy for comparing different vintages of a program.
