When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort

YES...
if You do not want yes/no answers, do not ask yes/no questions

stupid question, if I hadn' t I would not have suggested it!
what kind of example do You want anyway ...
ISMF is an ISPF based application for storage management,
ask Your support to enable it, and start lurking thru its panels

Sorry, I'm not a storage expert, so I don't know what is or is not available to run in batch, but did an IDCAMS LISTCAT not meet your needs?

thank You very much for making me waste my time ..
that all Your bytes lose their parity


anyway ...
Naviquest component of ISMF will run in batch,
if Your laziness had not prevented You from looking at the manuals You would have already found out about it
cheers

I'd suggest DCOLLECT as an option, but you'd actually have to do some work to process the data generated.

my preference for this kind of <thingies> goes to
an adrdssu copy/dump TYPRUN=NORUN
and if the output does not look good clean it up with
a sort step, or a rexx script

adrdssu filtering is quite sophisticated and really handy if You know how to use it
no I will not provide an example
cheers
