How to transfer sas datasets from mainframe to unix

I want to transfer sas datasets from one envirinment (MAinframe)  to another (Linux) in sas.

 

Can anyone share your views on this.

 

Thanks in advance..

The main options as I see it:

  1. If you have license for SAS/CONNECT use data transfer services in that product (that is PROC UPLOAD/DOWNLOAD).
  2. Create a SAS transport file, transfer it to the UNIX box, and import it there. See doc on PROC CPORT/CIMPORT.

I also suggest you take a look at CEDA=Cross Environment Data Access, it was part of SAS/CONNECT but is now available with BASE SAS:
