Hi All,

I want to learn REXX as it is very powerful. I heard it helps coding free format way and make complex things available in much easier way.

Could any one please suggest me how I can learn it?

If you have TSO in your shop - REXX is available for you in its interpreted flavour.

You can start by reading IBM's fine manuals.

My recommendations, as I've posted previously. From many of the posts here in this forum, it too often seems that folks are jumping into REXX programming without first mastering some of the basic fundamentals:


  • 1. Make sure you have a good fundamental knowledge of structured programming design, file I-O routines, tables and arrays, and logic design.
  • 2. You should have a good working knowledge of JES and MVS fundamentals, JCL design, dataset structures, and utilities.
  • 3. You should have a good working knowledge of TSO commands and functions.
  • 4. If writing ISPF Dialogs or EDIT macros in REXX is desired, obvioulsy a good working knowledge of those services is needed.
