SAS Studio line ending

Hi guys,

 

I'm working with SAS programs using SAS Studio, my colleague preffers Enterprise Guide as te editor. Those two use different line ending styles, so whenever we modify a single program it makes it really hard to track changes we've made, since source control highlights the whole file due to the change in line endings. Can I change the way SAS Studio handles new lines? (Unix->Windows).

Re: SAS Studio line ending

When you save SAS codes from EG to the UNIX server (using Files in the Server List), the files are written with UNIX-style LF as line separators. So you should set up a shared location on the server, accessible by both of you, as a program repository.

That also adds the advantage that your work will be protected by the server's backup system (desktops often have no backup implemented).

If I understand correctly, this is the way we do it,however it's a Windows based server.

Ouch.

 

Since even my old friend google couldn't come up with an answer, I suggest opening a track with SAS technical support. Maybe they can find an option that makes Studio write DOS-style files.
