Darren's Rexx Add-ons
Welcome to my Rexx Add-ons page. I created this page as a way to distribute
the Rexx Add-ons I have written.
Both of the Add-ons below include the full C source code. If you port either
to another system, please send me a binary for that system and any changes you
made so I can add them to the the distribution below.
- (Updated) RxSock v 1.2, a Rexx interface to
Rexx interpreters I can support directly are
WinRexx. It should also work with
IBM Object Rexx and
Quercus Systems Personal Rexx, but I
have no way of testing those versions myself. I also include an older version
(1.0) for DEC Alpha/NT that was provided by
Ports to non-Windows systems
with BSD sockets should be fairly easy from the current code.
RXSOCK/Intel is now distributed as a single DLL for all interpreters, using
Mark Hessling's REXXTRANS utility. You will need to install REXXTRANS, which
is included in the RXSOCK distribution, before you can use RXSOCK.
- RxDial v 0.6 (beta), a Rexx Internet
Provider (ISP) dialer. Win32 versions for
WinRexx available. A REXXTRANS version
(see above) is available, which should work with all 4 Rexx interpreters
RxDial is an
interface to the icons in Dial-Up Networking. The Rexx API is generic enough
that compatible versions for non-Windows systems should be possible.
Also included is a full description of the API and some example programs in
Rexx. The main example program waits until late at night, connects to the
Internet, downloads a file via FTP, then disconnects from the Internet. It
Feel free to contact me with any
questions/comments on these Add-ons.
