General Development "What is it with old languages? I only have to mention REXX while talking about Mumps and someone (the sort of person who remembers that the original, circa 1970-80, MUMPS was actually an O/S, language and integrated DBMS all in one - I can relate to that, perhaps why I like iSeries too) jumps up to say how much they liked it. I liked REXX partly because (like many other much-loved languages), it actually had a personality attached to it - Mike Cowlishaw."

Mike Cowlishaw probably liked Rexx because he wrote the damn language himself.
Nowadays, see ooRexx. There is also Netrexx but that is years out of date and no source code available.
