    Hi group,
    I used Masfield PC REXX 20 years ago. I've since scanned the 1997 "ObjectREXX" text by Wahli et.al. but I don't want to become a full O-O person just yet. I've got a mini-project to load some test data into DB2 tables via flat files and LOAD.

    Can someone provide me with a skeleton that I can run from a Win XP command prompt to allow me to generate an output file x.txt that I produce with a series of LINEOUT comands. I've installed ooREXX 3.1.2. I also have the old OblectREXX that came with the 1997 text.

    I'm very appreciative if you can help ASAP.

      Thanks! Got it to work. I'll go back to my 1985 Cowlishaw text and the 1988 O'hara Gombergeg text for examples. Nice to know you guys and gals[?] are around just in case! LK

      well, it's not much different than PC Rexx (except for maybe the lineout part

      do while not_finished
      call lineout filename, dosomething()
      end

      Larry,

      You can use Classic Rexx format with OORexx. No need
      to learn OORexx, Classic Rexx is supported.
