   Rexx code

Here are some Rexx programs that I have written. Please take note of the licence in each program; in particular, programs that contain code that I wrote when I was employed by IBM are licensed to me by IBM for non-commercial use only and this applies to any derivative code also. These programs are marked with † below.

All programs below are currently in use under Windows 7. Many have been used in the past under Linux but have not been tested recently in that environment. See the header comment in each program for instructions and more details.
