Re: EGP project monitoring

SAS EG is a Windows client and the EG project (.egp) is stored on the client side. This excludes principally both UNIX and using SAS (unless you've got a locally installed SAS). 

 

There are ways to version code:

If you're using a recent EG version then also look-up in the EG help what's documented for "File Comparison" and "Program History".

Re: EGP project monitoring

All versioning systems work with text files, as differences (deltas) can easily be determined. The compressed format of the egp (hierarchical collection of xml and text in a zip archive) does not lend itself to versioning (the whole binary content of the archive changes).

So, instead of versioning projects, you should start versioning SAS codes.
