Hi all,

First, compress and delete are two very different operations. Compress generally applies ONLY to a PDS (partitioned data set) and removes free space holes within the PDS that arise as members are deleted and re-added (such as when a member is edited). Delete means to completely remove the data set from the system.

Second, IEBCOPY is the usual batch method to compress a PDS. ISPF 3.4 in TSO also allows a data set to be compressed.

Third, deleting data sets can be done online (ISPF 3.4) or through batch (reference the data set with DISP=(OLD,DELETE,DELETE) in the JCL).
