How to effectively manage version control on SAS EG(UNIX platform)?

Hi Everyone,

 

In my department, we started using SAS EG on UNIX for all our production jobs and we are doing the version control manually and it takes a lots of time and are prone to errors

Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for version controling on SAS EG(UNIX), using any free tools or using any feature in SAS EG itself.

 

Please let me know.

 

Thank you in advance.

EG supports the use of external Source Control tools.

 

SAS Programs are text files so they can be treated as such. If you need to version EG projects as a whole then you can still do that.

This is detailed but old, there may be better ways, and hopefully Chris will comment directly.

We version control our SAS programs developed in EG using MS Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server as this is the company's preference and it is supported by IT. It works very well. I suggest you look at any tools already used in your organisation.
