Authors/Port authors:

RxExtras is a set of functions to enhance OS/2's REXX programming language, and is accompanied by additional functions to be used by other PM Rexx-based software (VisPro/Rexx and VX-Rexx, among others). Some of the functions provided by RxExtras can be accomplished by various other means using "pure" OS/2 REXX code, but RxExtras provides an easier interface and more efficient processing.

This software is distributed in two modes:
  • as compressed package that you have to download and manually install; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too;
  • as RPM package; you can install it using your favorite rpm package manager, that will take care to download and install both the software and its prerequisites.
Choose the installation mode that you prefer. Please note that not all the versions are available in both the installation modes.
