After years of using SAS under varied platforms, I enjoyed working under UNIX environment since it provided me with some easy-to-learn commands when I needed to perform varied development, production, and analytical tasks. All those commands, if applied appropriately, can improve the efficiency of the codes and the usage of resource. Besides, depending on the objectives of the tasks, the developer can choose between batch and interactive SAS mode and integrate the SAS codes with UNIX scripts to reduce the run time of the jobs and avoid errors. Furthermore, with the help of UNIX, the developer can even automate some tasks which usually require manual steps under PC environment. This paper will provide some tricks mentioned above
