Re: Autoexec.sas file Dm"pgm;zoom;"; doesnot wrk in SAS 9.2 #2

Hi Ace,

The PGM is the editor window up through v6.12
but also still exists today.

For the Enhanced Editor you can use:

dm editor 'zoom' wedit ;

Hope this is helpful.

But this will not open the PGM window - by default the newer Enhanced
Editor is used, which is all very well but doesn't support some of the
features long-time users have grown to know and love.

So I can see why the OP would want it, even though it lacks some of
the later features, notably multiple windows. I also tend to use it,
depending on what work I'm doing, as the Enhanced Editor still isn't
included in Unix releases, which I use all the time, so the different
characteristics, particularly the fact that it leaves your code in the
editor when submitted, often cause confusion when switching between
the two platforms.
