If I were to run LISTC ENT('DATASET') ALL in Z/OS, how do I identify VSAM dataset attributes?

Do you know of any appropriate references on the web?

example output:

You'll find "LINEAR" in the "ATTRIBUTES" section above, which indicates a LINEAR  (=LDS) dataset.

Other types could be "INDEXED" (= KSDS), "NUMBERED" (= RRDS) or "NONINDEXED" (= ESDS).

Or what do you mean with "VSAM type"?
