I need to find a new Rexx interpreter. I have been using Quercus Rexx for many years. It works just fine, but there is no support, no development, very limited GUI tools, and no development tools.
I tried Reginald awhile back because of the IDE and the GUI tools. The IDE is pretty good, but very buggy and the support is spotty.
I see that Regina does have a GUI package, but I did not see anything about development tools. Are there any debugging aids other than the Trace statement? I would like something like the IDE that comes with Visual Studio.
You mention the Trace statement, but you may not be aware of the Interactive mode it provides by preceding an option with a Question Mark "?". This allows you to type in say and other statements to see what you want.
Using Notepad++ and associating the .rexx and .rex extensions to Regina, I find I have a very "fast" debug environment.
