Subject: question about XCOPY and CPORT
This question will fall into the "this must
have been asked a billion times already..."
I'm going to be porting several SAS data sets from
MVS to BOTH a SUN Unix system and an OS/2 system.
Normally, I'd use XCOPY to convert my data
sets to transport formats. But, CPORT seems to have
replaced XCOPY. But the syntax for CPORT
seems too sparse - that is, I can't figure
out how to tell CPORT where to stuff the
transport data set.
I know a lot about the MVS and OS/2 data formats, but
SUN format could be a surprise (althought it
shouldn't be). Will it?
The obvious questions seem to be is XCOPY
history and should I really be using CPORT.
Or it doesn't matter where I'm sending the
transport data set - is a transport data set is
a transport data set?
What would be really nice is if someone would
send me an example of PROC CPORT using a
disk SAS data set and making a disk transport
Thanks in advance.
