Webbatch and REXX

Keywords:   REXX

Question:

I have to port a series of OS/2 HTML pages and REXX scripts over to NT. The HTML pages seem to run 'as is' under NT, but the REXX scripts present a new problem.

Have you guys heard of REXX ? .. sorry if that's an insult . Can WebBatch possibly replace what REXX did for OS/2.

I don't know much about REXX myself so any clarification, ideas, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:

WebBatch can pretty much replace REXX in most circumstances.

It kind of depends on exactly what the scripts do and such. It may require a slightly different implementation of the logic.

I would hazard a conversion time guess of maybe 5 minutes per line of REXX code ASSUMING you understand exactly what the REXX script is doing.

I think its time for me to go out and buy some stock in Starbucks...
