DLIST is a full-screen display of disks accessed by any CMS or GCS machine. Displayed disks can be linked and accessed by pressing a PF key. A Refresh PF Key can be used to monitor the capacity of a displayed disk while files are being written.

DLIST requires QDISK EXEC (included) and XASTOR MODULE (not included), and privilege classes A and E if disks accessed by other virtual machines are to be shown. OPTION LNKNOPAS is recommended for linking other users' disks.

This is version 1.3.0 of DLIST, which has been updated for z/VM 3.1.0.
