is a "human-oriented" language designed as an effective and simple alternative to the Java language. With NetRexx, you can create programs and applets for the Java environment faster and more easily than with Java. Using Java classes is especially easy in Netrexx, as different types of numbers and strings that Java expects are handled automatically by the language. Inspired by two very different languages, Rexx and Java, NetRexx blends the easy to learn syntax of Rexx with the robustness and portability of Java. The result is a language which is tuned for both scripting and application development, and is truly general-purpose.
