Microsoft Rexx

Dell / LATITUDE D610
July 10, 2010 at 06:47:05
Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, 2.127 GHz / 1015 MB
I came across a microsoft kb article that
described different rexx functions (pos,
wordpos, etc.), with the "Applies to"
referencing MS Lan Manager. Did MS ship
Rexx with it's OSes or an application at one
time? I've used the Regina interpreter in the
past, but was curious if Windows (ever)
supported Rexx natively...

I haven't heard of MS shipping Rexx with anything. Rexx originated with IBM (scripting language for the mainframe VM/SP system). In 2004 IBM donated Object Rexx to the Rexx Language Association, so you ought to be able to find an open source version floating around somewhere... and yes, it ran under Windows.

Thanks Phil,
I was a mainframe systems programmer that used Rexx quite a
bit. Mr. Colishaw did a fine job constructing the language, which
seemed to have more features and functions every time I used it.

When your only tool is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.
