Hi Everyone,

I'm planning to create some tool for maintaining the documentation about the system, program leverl and other imporatant information. It is like suppose if we give the program name system should return the information about the program something like that. Basically it is like documentation maintaining in mainframes.

Anyone worked on such kind of tool?? please help me with your inputs/suggessions.

i have little knowledge on both CLIST and REXX i mean i am not expert just an entry level person.

Thanks.

1. CLIST has been around since at least the Bronze Age. Rexx since the late 20th Century.
2. Look at a CLIST, look at some Rexx. Decide which is easier to read
3. Choose Rexx if you want to get much in the way of general support
4. Rexx is available in many implementations running on other architechtures/operating systems
5. Choose Rexx, no contest
