process flow history control

Hi,

 

I recently updated to SAS 7.1 and found the neat new feature of program history control. This is a great new feature that will make my life a bit easier in the future.

 

However, I have one question; Is there anyway of implementing the history control to entire process flows? I want to be able to follow changes in queries, graphs, etc. Basically anywhere code is written fore me using the graphical user interface.

 

Thanks,

 

Jon Nielsen

Re: process flow history control

The underlying system is git, a versioning system for program codes, therefore text.

Unless a sensible way is found to represent the process flow in a text file (where small changes in the flow don't cause a complete rewrite of the text that makes it impossible for the versioning system to show the difference in an understandable way), I don't see how SAS could implement that.
