Writing VX-REXX Programs - Ronny Richardson

REXX is both extremely easy to use and very powerful. However, REXX has a command-line interface that seems out-of-date for the graphical user interface (GUI) of OS/2. Additionally, this command-line interface requires a great deal of coding to put all but the simplest information on the screen. As powerful as REXX is, its interface needs a lot of work. VX-REXX provides a graphical transplant for REXX. It handles the user interface for REXX using a GUI, with very little coding on the programmer's part. You can create very complex screens by drawing objects and assigning properties to them. Often, only a few lines of REXX code are needed to manipulate the interface, and even then VX-REXX will help you write them.
