I don't see how an indirect method of passing
-describe- output to a dataset can ever be easier
than using -describe- directly. Perhaps what you
really want is something like -ds-.

I have a large dataset and would like to have an easy way to look at
all the variables and variable types in the dataset.  Ideally, I would
like to create a dataset from the output of the "describe" command.
That is, have a new dataset with a list of all the variable names and
storage types.  Is there an easy way to do this automatically without
having to cut and paste anything?
