VX-REXX Applications and Tools for OS/2 (ArcaOS, eComStation)

Watcom's VX-REXX was a popular visual REXX application development tool for OS/2. Despite the fact its last release dates back to 1995 it is still used for many tools and applications in OS/2 (ArcaOS, eComStation).

This page is intended to become the source for many open-source projects from the past, the present and the future, which are based upon VX-REXX.

In addition it should become a resource for tools, extensions and information around VX-REXX.
