True.  I would add that a *UsrSpc is extendible, which is a Huge advantage
for putting valriable-length stuff into it.  (I had CmdLine *UsrSpc tools,
iirc, which simplified dealing with them the exact same way as *DtaAra.)

| There are other differences. You can't normally access the contents of a
| *USRSPC from a command line, but you can a *DTAARA. On the other hand,
| since you don't have any system-provided command-line or HLL front-end
| on a *USRSPC, it may be somewhat easier to put whatever you please into
| one than a *DTAARA.
|
| Of course, either one is considerably easier to deal with than a
| program's associated space.
