what utility will display the attributes of a DATACLAS?

I have several DATACLAS opportunities,
and would like to know which one suits my needs.



SECOND QUESTION
i have noticed that one DATACLAS allocates the SIZE in megabytes.
i am old school and am used to TRACK/CYLINDER type allocation.

is there an advantage to allocating in megabytes?

will still try to implement gilbert's stuff, just to see if it will work on my version of z/OS-DFSMS, and to see if I can.

again,

ISMF;4 will list your Dataclases and then LISTPRT as a command line command allows it to be printed into a file.

Advantage of KB,MB type allocations is device independence and means more to non Storage people. Easy to convert by dividing with 56664 for a tracks vale then by 15 for cyls.

I use it a bit on SPACE parameters. So for example if you want enough space for 100,000 x 80 byte records primary and 10,000 secondary, code:

SPACE=(80,(100,10),RLSE),AVGREC=K
