|SAS Companion for the CMS Environment
Under CMS, you can access or connect
to a SAS session in any
of the following ways:
- 3270 terminals
- You can use devices that support extended
data streams as well as those that do not. See Terminal Support in the CMS Environment for more information about terminal
- terminal emulators
- Terminal emulators that you can use to access
SAS under CMS include Emulus (available from SAS Institute) and EXTRA, Rumba,
Communications Manager, and so forth (available from other vendors).(footnote 1)
- SAS/CONNECT software
- SAS/CONNECT supports
cooperative and distributed processing between CMS and OS/390, OpenVMS, UNIX,
OS/2, Windows, and VSE. It supports advanced communications protocols (APPC
or TCP/IP), enabling local clients that are running SAS to communicate with
one or more SAS applications or programs that are running in remote environments.
For more information, see
Communications Access Methods for SAS/CONNECT and SAS/SHARE Software.
- SAS/SHARE enables
local and remote clients in a heterogeneous network to update SAS data concurrently.
It also provides a low-overhead method for multiple remote clients to read
local SAS data. For more information, see
SAS/SHARE Software: Usage and Reference.
FOOTNOTE 1: Although Emulus software is available
from SAS Institute, it operates independently of the SAS System and its applications.
It offers enhancements to 3270 terminal operations as well as extended, interactive
features for users of SAS graphics applications. See
A Guide to Emulus Software: An Enhanced 3270 Emulator for the X Window
System for further information.
