Hello, Im thinking in studying some of this language but I cannot see practical examples of its use.
Can you tell me about some programs that you use in order to see what can it do?

A sample more complex than Hello, World!

ibmmainframes.com/viewtopic.php?t=65373

There are approx. 100500 other samples at this forum, plus approx. 100500100 more samples at other locations. To say nothing about the books, and manuals.

I am curious of what practical tasks you do in other languages. Can you give examples? That is, I am not interested in code snippets, but rather what requirements you meet.

Pardon me, I did not make clear that I was asking for useful programs for a mainframe programer.

What is the difference between “a useful program”, and “a useless one”? icon_biggrin.gif

The original poster said he was referring to useful programs for a mainframe programmer... this is not a one-size-fits-all type of situation. For example, some people are managing the operating system while others are doing database stuff.

The best approach is that when you encounter a problem, to try to solve it with rexx. And by using it, you can learn it.
