Bear with me, I am using REXX since 1981 and I am familiar with several Object
Oriented Languages, but ... I can not get OO REXX to work with classes in
separate files.:-( This is all on 64-bit Windows 7 with the December 5 Version
of OO REXX
I want to write a script a.rex, which uses the class b.rex from its own file.
Having b.rex in the PATH path does not work, having it in the same directory
as a.rex and making it the current directory does not work either. I believe I
do not understand the documentation and I do not find samples demonstrating
this simple structuring.
Here is my sample, which delivers following error:
3 - x = .B~new(13)
Error 97 running D:\Temp\a.rex line 3: Object method not found
Error 97.1: Object ".B" does not understand message "NEW"
/--- Begin of File A.Rex ---/
x = .B~new(13)
/--- End of File A.Rex -----/
/--- Begin of File B.Rex ---/
current = Arg(1)
If Datatype(current, "Numerical") = 0 Then current=1
/--- End of File B.Rex -----/
A working example or any hint is highly appreciated!
Class definitions that are intended to the shared with other files must be
marked with the PUBLIC keyword, otherwise they are only visible to code within
the same file. Change your class B declaration to
::class B public
Oh Boy! That is easy and that makes sense and I even remember that I saw the
keyword somewhere. Excuse me and thanks a lot for the immediate help!!
