SAS can't even do this itself!!  There are a number of different
'internal' data formats for SAS (I currently use Wintel, AIX, and DEC) and
they aren't compatible with each other.  One of the main uses of the
export files (I use proc cport/cimport) is to move the data from one SAS
environment to another.

I do have a vague memory of things that could at least read the wintel
data sets...

I haven't had a chance to try, but how does R do cross platform?
