Introduction to REXX Workshop (Part 1 of 2) (BYOC)
Project and Program: Linux & VM
, SHARE in Anaheim 2012
The REXX Language has been with us for more than two decades. It was designed to be easy to use, and continues to be popular across many computing platforms. z/OS and z/VM system programmers and administrators find REXX to be very useful in doing their jobs, and use it for everything from simple tools to complex applications. If you would like to learn the basics of the powerful REXX language, this two-part hands-on-lab is for you. We'll begin with basic syntax and expressions, continue with class exercises, and progress to more advanced topics and exercises. The focus will be on REXX on z/VM but the language constructs apply to REXX on all platforms. If you are new to z/VM, don't worry, we'll get you started and help you navigate your z/VM session to do the exercises. This is an informal workshop. Bring your own laptop with 3270 emulator installed.
