Subject: Moving in Around In UNIX
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
We just moved from PC SAS to Unix SAS last week and I am trying hard
adjust myself to it. We use SAS 6.12 on SunOS 5.6. We run SAS using
Exceed/Hummingbird X windows.
A simple question. How do I highlight a block of codes and run it?
For some strange reason, my SAS display manager on AIX is working almost
like it did on SAS PC. I can mark text (without using Mark Block or vi),
and then submit it with the little running guy icon.
I've made a few changes to SAS and operating system files, and can't
exactly pinpoint what fixed the situation. Thus, I'm going to give you
several suggestions of where to start.
First off, I running the latest and greatest version of Exceed (126.96.36.199)
for Windows 95--at least that is what the installer told me. Things have
seemed cleaner, since I was upgraded several months ago, but I don't think
this was the fix that allowed cut-and-paste to behave better.
Second, from SAS display manager on UNIX under VIEW on the PMENU, I think
that I altered the following:
Preferences-->Default Paste Buffer is set to Xterm
Edit Tool Box-->Command is set to WCOPY; Help Text is set to Copy
Marked Text; and Tip Text is set to Copy.
Third, my .profile (not sure if this is a file that is available across all
flavours of UNIX) directs my xapplresdir to a file that looks like the
following. I'm not sure if this file was provided with the SAS
installation or the Exceed installation, but SAS.markPasteBuffer has been

Hope some of this information helps. I'm sorry I didn't document better
what we did to get cut-and-paste to work.
