ca-librarian is an editor like ispf/pdf, but it defines
itself. therefore it has its own internal structure.
if you look at the file's definition, it is an sequential
dataset. only ca-librarian can access this data.
you have features like history, archiving a.s.o.
elips is just the fastpath command to invoke the editor.
but you can access the data also in batch (SUBSYS=LAM).
