Hello,

You might look into using the LISTPDS function of IEHLIST.

There is also a free-standing utility called PDSLIST that may do what you want (if it is installed on your system).
Hope this helps,

A LISTCAT "batch utility process" job will only give you information about a 'dataset' but nothing about the 'members'. I'm trying to find a "batch utility process" job that will list a PDS dataset 'members' attributes; Name, Size, Created, Changed, ID, etc.

...but thanks for the reply.

Actually, I did run IEHLIST with LISTPDS but that gave me only attribute Members but no attributes like Size, Created, Changed, and ID (=3.4 attributes).

Thanks.

This had not been entirely clear from your initial post. However, the LMMLIST services will return the ISPF user statistics in a library's directory (if they exist; I presume that you know that they are maintained by ISPF itself, not by MVS). I suggest, then, a program that invokes LMMLIST (and other necessary services) that is run under background ISPF.

These users thanked the author Akatsukami for the post:

Thanks, I do more research from the link you provided for LMMLIST.

In other words, you want a utility to produce output like
LIST SRC


SRC       XXXX25  XXXXXX.ASM

ADDSTATS  0000110F 01.00 08/03/11 08/03/11 07:42:20    282    282      0 XXXXXX

       60 directory entries
       11 used directory blocks
       15 allocated directory blocks


LIST LOAD


LOAD      XXXX08  XXXXXX.LOAD

ABPRT     00341C2C 00000080 00000000           0  24  24
ADDALIAS  00010E2C 00001000 00000000           0  24  24 RN RF RU

      206 directory entries
       33 used directory blocks
       50 allocated directory blocks

The SRC and LOAD text on the LIST command is a DD name.

Yes, I'm looking for a batch utility process I can run that will give me the results comparable to TSO browsing in =3.4. - Name, Prompt, Size, Created, Changed, ID, etc.
Do you have or know of a batch job that will do this? Thanks.
BROWSE            PBCL.GYM.TEXT80                           Row 00001 of 00036
Command ===>                                                  Scroll ===> CSR 
           Name     Prompt       Size   Created          Changed          ID

One could write a batch program that would provide a data set list comparable to ISPF 3.4, but without the interaction, what would be the point?

who the heck knows....
and who in heaven is ever going to look at the data for 79.000 members




and it works also for concatenated datasets

obviously once the info to be displayed has been chosen the data must be formatted on one line

The batch job is going to "look" at the 79,000 members and from certain criteria I have (i.e. when PDS Member Changed and certain ID's) I will be reporting my results to my Leads.
