Work with REXX on PC.

Post by Dilip Prasad » Sat Sep 26, 2015 8:39 pm

Hello,

I am interested in working with REXX on PC, may be even if it involves working with DOS. Does anyone know about any site where I could download the REXX utility/interpreter for PC and then can implement it on the mainframe later.

Cheers
