I haven't thought that recsel can be used for it (I use it to access
records, not record set data like descriptors).  SQL systems have
separate commands to show the table schemas, recinf might have a similar

Both tools have largely different implementation and recinf could be
easily extended to use an index file without reading any non-descriptor
records from the recfile (recsel would need much special-casing to not
do a query and use the same code as recinf).
