Is there any difference between the statements :
ALLOC FI(DDNAME) DATASET(<dataset name>)
ALLOC FILE(DDNAME) DATASET(<dataset name>)
ALLOC DATASET(<dataset name>) F(DDNAME)

The keyward 'F' 'FI' and 'FILE' are same or anything specific for I, O, or IO files..

Thanks,
Ayan

When you issue the command TSO HELP ALLOCATE, the help text will tell you what the valid abbreviations are.

The commands you've listed are all the same.
