db2db2-luwscripting

There are various options for db2look you can use to see the DDL for just about every object in the database except the command that created the database itself. Is there any way with db2look, or perhaps with some other system command, where you can see the exact command structure that created a database?

The minimum requirement is to have DB2 10.1.4 or DB2 10.5 installed.
