If it's strictly "read only", you shouldn't need SAS/SHARE. In the MVS
world(SNA), all MICS(SAS
based repository) datasets are just allocated "disp=shr"==> no problem.
We also developed a
small LAN based SAS/AF application(<30 users), using a work control-file
for each user against an updatable SAS master file==>virtually no

Is there a better (or alternative way) of doing multiple, shared, read-only
access to SAS datasets over a network? (ie. other than using SAS share).
