Hi,
Maybe somebody can give me some differences between Dataset names Type :LIBRARY and PDS.

In my idea both have the same function but what im not sure is the limitations of each type, that is why i want to know the advantage and disadvantage of LIBRARY and PDS.

In the fine manual, all i can find is about PDS, but i can find the anything about LIBRARY/

Thanks in advance for any reply.
