Define "non-SAS datasets".

For raw text or binary files, a text or binary file viewer works fine. If you have SAS/FS licensed, 'fslist' will bring up a file viewer with optional ruler and column counter. Most of the Unix-based editors work fine (e.g.: vim, emacs). UltraEdit may be useful on MS Windows systems.

For specific other application binary data formats (e.g.: other DBMS formats, Excel files, etc.), the source application may be, or provide, a viewer.
