Your recollection is correct. The reverse of the above is also true though.
If he had one big dasd-chewing spool file (as he said he did) then deleting
that spool file would immediately get him back the disk space (less the
member overhead) that the spool file had used. If you have a couple of big
spool files then RCLSPLSTG doesn't buy you that much, but if you have lots
of little spool files RCL buys you a lot.
