see the SAS-L archives for references to the "dictionary tables"

On your SAS display manager session look at the views in SASHELP. SASHELP.VTABLE and SASHELP.VMEMBER are views of dictionary.tables and dictionary.members respectively.

But I wouldn't expect a unix cat command to be much help with the SAS data sets that the dictionary tables would list ....?

Have flat files in the current SAS work library?
