When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort 8-)

but this one is even better

rosetta code has quite a lot of algorithms in REXX

but it would be difficult to find a worse coding approach ( for any language )
it is a good example on how to write unmaintainable code

Thanks. For REXX, are there some guidelines fr maintainable code? I mean what are good programming practices to keep in mind as I start learning it.

The same as for every other language. Keep it simple. Use comments where thigs may not be simple. Do not use GO TO. Use sub-routines/procedures. Document. Indent. One statement per line. etc etc etgc
