PPWizard is a free html preprocessor which is powerful and yet easy to use. Preprocessors allow you to easily include external files (to include html files such as common html headers, footers or navigation) an more! You can generate html/rexx/ipf/inf from the same source code and executable cmd scripts!

This software is distributed as compressed package. You have to download and manually install it; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too.

Manual installation

Program is distributed as ZIP package: download to temporary directory and unpack to destination folder.

  1. Add this directory to the "PATH" statement in "CONFIG.SYS" to allow you to work from the command line
  2. Run "OS2SETUP.CMD" (ppwizard setup program). This creates a ppwizard folder on the desktop with some doc icons plus an "association" folder - leave this alone!

See below for download link(s).

Fundamentals of REXX language, mandatory to the use of PPWizard toolkit, can be found in the book "Procedures Language /2 REXX User's Guide", included into the operating system, to deepen, the toolkit manual itlsef and it is suggested also the book REXX Reference Summary Handbook.

PPWizard v. 22.121 (1/5/2022, Dennis Bareis) Readme/What's new
Version 22.121 Improved the {$?} command and it's documentation. You can now start this with "$$1" to apply following $$ commands" over the whole string rather than each parameter individually (this could be useful to store the unused parameter string in a rexx variable. Improved the trap handling to always show the trapping line (when known) in the short output to the console. Now outputs values of duplicated macro parameters when aborting. New option "DuplicateParms" (determines action when duplicate parameters found on a macro, previously always aborted). Improved the warning message if syntax checking normally occurs but neither "<?SyntaxCheck>" or "<?SyntaxCheckOff>" was used. Also improved the documentation for both of these codes. Now include the rexx compiled help document in the installer. Other minor adjustments to code and documentation.
