Authors/Port authors:

WPS2Rexx is a program designed to ease the backup of the WorkPlace Shell component of OS/2 2.x.

It allows you to save the contents of your WorkPlace to a Rexx script. The Rexx script can be used to regenerate your WorkPlace objects in case of disaster. It can also be used on a corporate basis to standardize WorkPlace's. It will also enable you to save the icons to separate .ICO files.
Unlike many other similar products on the market WPS2Rexx/2 uses only official WorkPlace API to obtain the information it needs. Therefore the program should continue to run in the future whether or not IBM decides to change the layout of the OS/2 .INI files.
