This is a mainframe forum for mainframe uses of REXX. Why would you even think we could answer your question about Windows REXX? If Windows REXX allows you to open another text file, you will need to consult a Windows forum on how to do it since mainframes do not work in that way.

From the point of view of a mainframe person, there are at least two ways of interpreting your request.
  • Your Rexx exec has directed Windoze to open a program, such as Notepad++, and the Rexx exec has either terminated, or it is waiting for the other window to terminate. If this is the case, I suspect what you propose cannot be done.
  • Your Rexx exec has been initiated by an application, such as the Notepad++ application mentioned by Mr. Sorichetti. Assuming this is possible, then I presume it is possible for the Rexx exec to open an application/window, though I do not know how to do this. You have two choices here: consult the Regina Rexx documentation - you do have it, I hope - or find a Windoze forum like this one and ask your question there. As Mr. Sample says, this forum is for people that use the z/OS TSO version of Rexx, not any Windoze version of Rexx.
