Doyle, good question and you are going to be pleased to read that you have two easy options to choose from.
1. Simply use PROC DOWNLOAD to download your SAS data set from your UNIX server to your PC. Then, run your PROC MEANS on your desktop.
2. User SAS/Connect's Remote Library Services to suck your SAS data set from your UNIX server and feed it into your PROC MEANS running on your desktop.
Referring to my seminal SAS Global Forum 2007 SAS/CONNECT paper:
Process Your SAS data Sets Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere You Choose With SAS/Connect.
...take a look at PROC DOWNLOAD in Example 1 of the paper for #1, above. Take a look at Example #3 in the paper for #2, above.
If you have any questions that the paper cannot answer; simply throw them on the list and the SAS-L smarties will doubtlessly provide a half-dozen good answers:-)
Doyle, best of luck in all of your SAS endeavors!
I hope that this suggestion proves helpful now, and in the future!
