Hello,

Unless there is some pressing reason to start working with clists, i'd recommend you invest your time in learning REXX. REXX is more versatile as well as having more people available who can provide assistance.

If you seriously want to look into clists, you might start here:
http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/epubs/pdf/ikj4b840.pdf

To answer your dataset question, clist datasets are just some other partitioned datasets - they happen to contain clist components, rather than jcl or cobol code or whatever.

A FB,80 byte PDS can hold CLISTs. Some sites use a VB, 255 format for CLIST libraries so long commands do not span multiple lines. If you're EXecuting your code directly, either is OK.

If you're adding one to the TSO proc the format must match the other SYSPROC concatenated libraries.
