  • Learning REXX??

    There's not much directly related to 400/REXX. 400/rexx is done in germany??!! If you send me an e-mail address, I'll send you a copy of some notes I did for 400/rexx some years back. bob hamilton [email protected] [email protected]

    Learning REXX??

    Would like to learn about REXX on the 400. Have seen books for REXX for OS/2, etc. Can someone point me to a good book for learning REXX, other than those on the IBM Information Center? Thanks!

      Learning REXX??

      I've done very little REXX programming, but a couple of books I have are: The REXX Language 2nd Edition, by Michael Cowlishaw, ISBN 0-13-780651.5 Softcover from Prentice Hall, 1990, about $38 Cowlishaw is the language's inventor, I believe. He recommends the companion book, which I don't have, called Modern Programming Using Rexx, by O'Hara and Gomberg which appears to be more about programming than REXX. Programming in REXX, by Charles Daney, ISBN 0-07-015305-1 Hardcover from McGraw-Hill, 1992, don't remember the price but probably $$$$. I looked on Amazon; most listed are out of print or limited availability, but Down To Earth REXX by Schindler is recent and has a good review and great price ($20.96). I may get it myself.... Opamp Technical Books at http://opamp.com/ lists some REXX books that don't show up at Amazon, and has prices 5% less than Amazon. There are REXX code snippets for CGI processing & such at http://www.as400.ibm.com/net.data/ts...ip.mac/viewall REXX itself lives at http://www2.hursley.ibm.com/rexx/

        There are some resources on the Web for learning REXX. I sometimes have a browser window open to a site such as Kilowatt Software's REXX tutorial while I have a command window open.
