After checking in changes, a new change set is created:
  (1049) ---@ Gerald A. Feldman "<No comment>" 02-Jul-2014 08:07 AM
While I can obtain the alias, 1049 in this case, by a series of lscm list changesets, grep or other Linux commands, I don't see any way to be able to reference the generated name "---@".

The status flags for the change set should always be after the alias. However, the recommended method of parsing command line output is to use JSON. Results are output in JSON when the command is executed with the -j flag.

Thanks. The script I am writing will be in Python, so parsing a JSON output should be trivial
