Since sasfile supports certain write operations (proc append, fsedit in edit mode, sql insert/update/delete), it cannot apply to views (which are always read-only).

In-memory reporting spells "Visual Analytics" nowadays, so don't eat your heart out...

If you want to stay in Base/SHARE land, another option would be to have an ability to output directly to an in-memory data set.

Perhaps a new libname engine, or a new ds-option...

@ Kurt

Valid comment. Loading a view would mean the sasfile is read-only.

@ Linus. By the time VA can be used. 90% of the work has been done (behind the scene,to ready the data). It's this phase that need efficient data processing tools. VA does not replace "Base/SHARE land".
