converting from OS2 to Windowsxp

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    I know this is very basic. I have a simple rexx application that i've run on my IBM OS/2 for years. It broke (does anybody know where I could get another?). So I downloaded oo
    rexx for windows. .cmd file won't execute as a rexx program, it takes each line as if it were a typed in command--like os/2 would do if you left out /Rexx/ as the first line of code. What have I missed?

      Notepad has a line "goto" ctrl-g - that sometimes works and sometimes doesn't (typical Windows). I'd suggest looking for a GOOD editor for your ooRexx applications. EditPlus is a shareware editor that is used quite a lot in our shop. <> A single user license is $30 (US) if you're interested in registering.

      Rename the .cmd extensions to .rex

      Thanks Mark. Now I can commence getting out all my old inconsistancies that os/2 didn't care about. If I'm allowed another stupid question, does xp have a text editor that shows line nubers? Ihave a problem on line 2589, and it will take a long time to count down that far.
