I would far prefer that they simply fix some of the bugs in processing semi-colons. For example, the enhanced editor sometimes quietly inserts them (%put xxxx) and often colors lines after an open code macro call which does not use a semicolon as error. (However, in the latter case the code does process correctly and in the former it usually doesn't matter.)

I wonder what kind of a vote "Fix all bugs within 2 new SAS releases" would get. -----Original Message----- From: Fehd, Ronald J. (PHPPO) [mailto:rjf2@CDC.GOV] Sent: Tuesday, December 02, 2003 11:43 AM To: SAS-L@LISTSERV.UGA.EDU Subject: SASware ballot 22 Enhanced Editor

22 add an option to the Enhanced Editor to permit syntax-driven intelligent <---<<< %-Q word wrapping

"Oh, no, please, Hal. Don't wrap my words into that briar patch!?!"


I think they should add an item to the SASware ballot: "submitted on a Friday"

BigIron's ISPF has a TextFlow line command. An intelligent way to make your polishing go really fast, or create a need to restore from backup.

"What were they thinking?!"
