Here is the syntax and options for IND$FILE.

CRLFspecifies that carriage return/line feed should be recognized and deleted before file is stored on the host, and deletes trailing spaces and inserts carriage return/line feed characters as the last two characters in a line when a file is stored on the PC.
APPENDallows you to append a PC file to the end of an OS data set, or an OS data set to the end of a PC file. The following options pertain only to the SEND command.
BLKSIZE(nnnn)specifies the block size of the MVS mainframe data set, where n is the length of a data block in bytes. If omitted, the default is LRECL for new files.
LRECL(80/nnnn)specifies the logical record length of the host data set, where n is the length of a logical data record in bytes. If LRECL is omitted, the default is 80 bytes for new files.
RECFM(F/V/U)specifies the record format for the data set. n is either F for fixed-length records, V for variable-length records, or U for undefined-length records.
