Thanks for your reply.
I apologize if my post wasn't clear. That's probably because I'm not very familiar with Unix/Samba.
Here's the situation:
I have SAS program files on a Unix box. I would like to be able to edit these files and submit the files for execution via my text editor. Samba does allow me to open, edit, and save files on the Unix box as if it were a local file, and that's great. It's the part where I want to submit the program to the Unix box for execution that it gets a little bit more tricky.
My previous solution was to have a batch file call a program to remote submit some commands to Unix. Textpad allowed me to pass the path of the directory of the file I'm editing (via Samba) to this batch program already in the Unix format. This was nice, a little convoluted still, but it worked.
My current trial with UltraEdit forced me to find another way around this same problem, but with just a little extra complexity to get it working.
I have Perl for Window installed on my machine and I have a tool set up in UltraEdit that passes the path of the file to the Perl script, convert it to Unix format, then submits the commands to Unix to get the program to run. Perl obviously has a better search and replace function than windows batch does, so this has worked fine so far.
Again, thanks for your response, and if you know of an easier way to do what I'm doing, I'd certainly be interested in learning about it.
