Although the examples are operating environment-specific , the fundamental SAS command syntax for all transport methods is identical across operating environment types. The noteworthy syntax difference among operating environment types is how you specify the SAS data library name in the LIBNAME statement. For complete details about the syntax for the LIBNAME statement, see your operating environment companion documentation.
