I have a question related to allocation of primary space and secondary space...

Suppose

space=(CYLS(10,10),RLSE)

my question is if i need 12 cylinders of space, as against 10 allocated in primary, then it will take rest 2 from secondary.. What i want to know is what will happen to the remaining 8 in secondary...

Does full 10 of secondary is allocated or just 2 .

Hi,
it will release it.

the correct syntax is
Code:
SPACE=(CYL,(10,10),RLSE)

Thanks....

But now here is the question whose ans i m looking for..::

What is RLSE used for??
1. Release the extra space if not contiguously allocated.
2. Release the extra space allocated but not used for input file.
3. Release the extra space allocated but not used for output file.
4. Release the extra space if allocated and not used during primary allocation only.

I am confused b/w option 3 and 4.

Which one is the best option.???

Hi,

RLSE

requests that unused but allocated space be released when
the data set is closed and returned for use by other data
sets on the DASD volume.

Should this topic be moved to INTERVIEW QUESTIONS ?

Take a good look at the options available for the multi choice answer, then read Gerry's answer until you understand exactly what he has written, and then tell us your choice and the reasons behind that choice.

If you are wrong we will try to educate you further.
