Subject: Re: Converting Unix SAS format to PC SAS format system file
Is the free sas system viewer not a solution here ?
It appears that a sas session on the UNIX is not needed, only a listener
for FTP or http
Extracted from its on-line help (where I believe for version 7 read v8)
V6 data can be accessed via HTTP and FTP network protocols. Note: The
SAS System Viewer cannot open SAS files created under the Digital UNIX
Version 6.12 and Version 7 Cross-platform Files Supported:
IBM AIX for RS/6000
Microsoft Windows 95 and 98
Microsoft Windows NT (Intel versions)
Open VMS Alpha
Version 6.12 Only Cross-platform Files Supported:
PowerPC for Mac OS
Data General UNIX
Open VMS VAX
Version 7 Cross-platform Files NOT Supported:
Digital UNIX (also not supported for V6 filetypes)
