Excellent Question!!!!! I can think of several..
I used to use DIGITAL's EDT and then TPU/EDT for a
Looooooooooooonnnnnnnnggggggggggg time... ;-) Until all the keypad
activity on one hand started giving me trouble...
I then switched to Gvim, (Vi iMproved). It's a superset of the vi
editor, and it has SAS syntax builtin, plus syntaxes (sp?) for almost
every known language..
Knowing and using ONE editor makes for very fast and efficent editing..
Plus, for me, using batch mode makes sure my SAS code encapsulates all
my logic, so it "remembers" what I did. We had one user who left us and
all we had were fragments that was called into the interactive editor.
So, that's my case. your mileage may and will vary! ;-)
