Are there other utilities or programs besides LISTCAT to return information about datasets and/or catlog entries? Specifically one that returns information about multiple entries?

Rexx call LISTDSI works only one dataset at a time and it has to be PS or PO. Same for TSO command LISTDS.

LISTCAT produces formatted output. If I want a specific attribute from the entry I have to use a Rexx to parse the output and find the attribute.

Thanks

Thanks. I found documentation for this in DFSMS Managing Catalogs. There is sample code in SYS1.SAMPLIB(IGGCSIRX). I will give it a try

ISPF service LMDLIST can also provide catalog information for a list of data sets. The information is essentially the same as that provided by the 3.4 screen. If your requirement is more complex than that, then IGGCSIRX is the way to go.
