- A Survey of OS/2 REXX Libraries (New!)REXX Libraries. Introduction to REXX Libraries. Southern California OS/2 User Group Open House 1998 What We're Talking About...* This presentation concentrates on the REXX language with emphasis on functions and how they can be used to extend REXX. It includes:o Some historical background on the REXX languageo An introduction to functions as a programming language constructo A Review of "built-in" REXX Functions * A follow-on presentation examines three REXX libraries that extend the language in various ways.
- Guide to Writing CGI Scripts in (New!)Guide to Writing CGI Scripts in REXX and PerlLast Update: July 24, 1998. WelcomeCGI-scriptsIntroductionThis Guide is aimed at people who wish to write their own WWW executable scripts using WWW's Common Gateway Interface ( CGI). Though the main emphasis is on REXX many examples are also provided in Perl.There are some simple software libraries to facilitate writing CGI scripts. cgi-lib.rxx is a REXX library of functions (available at SLAC by using the REXXCALL PUTENV 'REXXPATH=/afs/slac/www/slac/www/tool/cgi-rexx'statement to include the library at execution time)and is a similar library in Perl written by Steve Brenner (there is an executable copy of this libary at SLAC in /afs/slac/g/www/cgi-lib/ NCSA has a very useful set of Perl CGI handler subroutines that are available via anonymous FTP.Another set of Perl CGI Server Side Scripts written by Brigitte Jellinek is available under Gnu public license. There is also the Source code for scripts and programs. There is also an index to Perl WWW programs gathered by Earl Hood. Finally see the Web Development Center.Since there are security and other risks associated with executing user scripts in a WWW server, the reader may wish to first view a document providing information on a SLAC Security Wrapper for users' CGI scripts. Besides improving security, this wrapper also simplifies the task of writing a CGI script for a beginner.

- Using REXX as a macro language (New!) Using REXX as a macro languageIntroductionMy last technical tip (Pointers Sep/Oct 94) looked at calling C code from REXX; and this time I thought I would look at the reverse problem - that of calling REXX code from C.This provides a relatively simple way to use REXX as a macro language, or alternatively to write a test harness for your own REXX scripts.For the purposes of this article imagine we wish to run a macro language inside a program. For simplicity we only want to provide a few simple commands: PAUSE, BEEP and TESTFAIL. However for security we wish to prevent the user passing instructions on to the command processor.Obviously to implement a complete macro language we would need more than this, possibly also making use of common variables between C and REXX; but this example illustrates the technique.One example, which may be familiar to some of you already, of a rather fuller implementation of a Rexx-based macro language is given by the Enhanced Editor (EPM) which uses .ERX files to provide extendability for the editor. If nothing else this article may be of interest if you are the sort of person who likes to know how something works!
- Writing WWW CGI Scripts in REXX (New!)Writing World-Wide Web CGI Scripts in REXXR. L. A. CottrellStanford Linear Accelerator Center, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94309Talk URL: // talk is aimed at people who have experience with REXX and are interested in using it to write WWW CGI scripts. As part of this, I will describe several functions that are available in a library of REXX functions that simplify writing WWW CGI scripts. This library is freely available at // the examples are in Uni-REXX.
- REXX Introduction, Tutorials, and Resources (New!)When you think of scripting languages used to process text files or create reports, the first languages that come to mind may be Python or Perl. However, there was a language called REXX developed by IBM in the late 1970s that also accomplished these features and can be considered a major precursor. REXX or Restructured Extended Executor is a free-form programming language that includes a ton of features including support for functions, ability to process unix commands, file I/O operations, debugging tools, and crash protection.

- The REXX Calculator (New!)The REXX CalculatorBy Dave SchneeEvery AS/400 (and many other machines with IBM-supplied operating systems) have REXX interpreters built-in. What seems to be a very well kept secret is that REXX is a very capable and versatile command language with full access to all system facilities. That is because REXX is able to execute all host commands.What is different, however, is that REXX is not a compiled language -- it is always interpreted. Moreover, it is permissible to create a REXX command in a REXX variable and then execute the command you have just created. Since the created command can be anything REXX can do, there are some unique and powerful possibilities. The following calculator is just one.To Implement the calculator, I use a CMD source member to allow prompting and command line entry.
