Rexx and Microsoft Small Business Server

Post by me » Sat, 17 Apr 2004 05:03:14


I am an OS/2 user who is being required to do some administrative work on
a Microsoft Small Business Server. It would make my life easier if Rexx
were available. Does anyone know what version of Rexx, if any, is
available on this platform? Any pointers? I am totally unfamiliar with
Rexx under Windows, so any help is welcome.

Dave,
If you're going to be doing administrative work might I suggest an
investment in IBM's Object Rexx for Windows.

There are several free Rexx interpreters for Windows, but I think
you'll find your money well spent - especially doing "administratiive"
work.

If you can spend money, I'd look into IBM Object Rexx - classic Rexx plus
Object enhancements (like on OS/2 only better). If you want something free,
look into Regina or Reginald.

REXX is available on Windows.

IBM makes Object REXX, a commercial version.

And there are two more freeware choices, Regina and Reginald. You can find
Reginald related stuff at http://www.yqcomputer.com/ ~jglatt/rexx/rxusrw32.htm
including the interpreter, add-ons such as a graphical de *** and script
editor, and extensive docs
