Do you know of any appropriate references on the web?

example output:

Here is a tutorial about interpreting LISTCAT's aoutput:

http://www.slideshare.net/danjodea/reading-the-listcat-entries-for-vsam

and this is from IBM's z/OS Infocenter:

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/zos/v1r9/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.zos.r9.idai200/da6i2235.htm

Which specific attributes do you need to identify?

I wanted to figure whether or not there were VSAM dataset attributes extant in the dataset.

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"?
