REXX was originally a VM/SP batch language used on IBM Virtual Machine (VM) systems. It is shipped with LAN Manager for OS/2. Command files written in REXX can be executed by the LAN Manager AT utility or can be run manually.
Here are suggestions for porting REXX applications to NT.
- Copy the OS/2 1.3 (not OS/2 2.0) CMD.EXE file to a directory on your NT machine.
- Copy the OS/2 1.3 (not OS/2 2.0) OS2\DLL\REXX*.DLL DLLs to a directory in the Os2LibPath statement on your NT machine.
- Run the OS/2 1.3 CMD.EXE file.
- Run a REXX script. The REXX file should be named *.CMD and its first two characters must be slash asterisk (/*). The first REXX file you run won't work. Re-run it and it should run correctly.
NOTE: Testing has determined that the PUSH and PULL commands generate error messages.
