REXX Programming Bookstore

REXX is a powerful scripting language used in many of IBM's platforms.
REXX is the scripting language used in IBM's panel display system, the Dialogue Manager. REXX is the language used for ISPF Editor macros. REXX can be used for custom-made programs which do not require the use of a compiler. REXX can be used for application programs but with a noticeable performance penalty over compiled languages.
There is a REXX for VM, VSE, OS/400, CICS TM, Linux, Unix, Windows and a REXX for CGI!

[The REXX Language on TSO]
The REXX Language on TSO.

By Gabriel F. Gargiulo

Publication date: August, 2012.
REXX for mainframe IBM MVS, OS/390, z/OS, TSO. Since there was so much demand for my TSO REXX book, "REXX in the TSO Environment," I decided to write a new one. This book will teach you the REXX language on TSO. If you need REXX for another operating system, you can learn REXX with this book because the differences are minor.
This book teaches you how to use REXX functions and how to create your own. It explains a few of the functions.
