Then CVS or Subversion should work just fine. They don't integrate with any
SAS IDE, but I don't see that as a problem.
They both work as follows:
You first check out code from a code repository to a local drive, edit it in
the SAS IDE (or however you choose to edit SAS files), debug any edits, and
when you're happy with the results those results can then be committed back
to the repository so other users can see your changes.
Tortoise CVS is a nice checkout/commit GUI that integrates well with Windows
