If we do not mentioned block contains clause in COBOL, this would mean the file is considered unblocked. If I mention blocksize > 0 in JCL, would the OS consider this file as blocked or unblocked?

I need to check this but I belive this would be at the system level and we would be unable to see if the file was considered blocked or unblocked?

Go into ISPF 3.4, put an "I" line command in front of the dataset name, if the lrecl equals the blocksize it is unblocked. Anyone should be able to do this.
