As well as the solutions mentioned using transport files you can use the pceng
to create the file on Unix - it creates the dataset in pc format.
It is also possible to access the Unix datasets directly using the sasffio
(?spelling) from a SAS NT libname - these solutions are best if you can see the
unix files from your PC, but they also save a step if you have to FTP the file
(binary) to the PC.
The SAsffio engine is only available if you have SAS/connect.
The PCENG and SASfio engines are in 6.12 but are apparently 'experimental'. V8
is going to have this cross platform access available more widely - anyone tried
