Assign remote libnames to the server directories containing data sets
you wish to process. The syntax is:
libname servlib remote 'some/directory/name' server=unix_hostname;
where "servlib" is the libname of your choice, 'some/directory/name' is
the fully qualified pathname where your data sets reside, and
"unix_hostname" is the name of the UNIX server to which you are
connected. You should get acceptable performance as long as your data
sets aren't too big, say less than 100,000 observations.
