db2look is a Linux/Unix/Windows tool.

Just because you find some manual from IBM, it still has to be the manual for your system.

Also, the "-" you have preceding the command is not supposed to be there, it is just the way they do the syntax diagram.

If you have luw, you can connect to a z/OS database, at least potentially. But you probably don't.

There is a mainframe version of DB2LOOK that you can find on the International DB2 users group web site. Use [URL] BBCode for Links

It is a free offering, not a vendor product. I have never used it so I have no comment about whether it will do what you want.
