Mainframe vs. AS400 vs. Unix terminolgy

Our company markets an IBM-based mainframe application generator. We are in the
process of porting the system to AS400 and various Unix platforms. All our
terminology in the documentation is for the mainframe.

We need comparable Unix and AS400 words/concepts for the following:

DLBL/DD card
ASA code
RECFM
LRECL
Dataset
JCL
EXEC / procedure
cluster
getmain/freemain

Please reply direct to me, since I suspect that this is a problem specific to us
(who else provides mainframe packages today?):
