Hi,

SPACE=(CYL,(20,2),ROUND) IS Suppose we have given the space in decimal it will round(add some more space to the allocated space) to the closest integer whereas if rlse is used it will release the unused space of the space allocated.

Hi Friend
Round- rounded to the nearest cylinder size, and Rlse -unused space released at the end of the job-step.

Thanks
Chandra

If I'm not mistaken, ROUND rounds up an alloc made using blksize instead of TRK to a CYL boundary. Certainly, no need for it w/CYL.
