And here it is: The next version of RXT&T.
In this version of RXT&T I added some more icons representing links to other pages and program calls from within RXT&T. (see Icons Used in REXX Tips & Tricks). Also new in this version are links to topics in the INF file titled OS/2 Command reference. And to distinguish between internal and external links, external links are now marked with a leading <-symbol. (see also Icons Used in REXX Tips & Tricks). I also added some imbedded REXX code.
Other changes in this version: I've deleted the section Optimizing REXX programs. Important information from this section is now merged into the section General hints for REXX. I've rearranged the sections General hints for OS/2 & DOS commands, General hints for REXX and Change the WPS with REXX. I think they are now more useful than before.
Of course there are again lots of new entries in this version. Some new chapters you might take a look at are The PARSE instruction and PARSE instruction examples. These chapters contain a detailed description of the <PARSE (<-- this is an external link -- see the difference?) command including a lot of examples showing how to use templates. Two other new chapters you might read first are CALL ON SYNTAX and The function RxFuncDrop.
And last: This version also contains an install program called INSTALL.CMD to create or update an WPS object for RXT&T.
---------- * ----------
Over the last year or two, my time and costs for maintaining RXT&T have increased dramaticly. RXT&T, now in its 10th iteration, has always been distributed free of charge to interested users. Due to the amount of time and money required to update and produce RXT&T, however, I am thinking about adding some advertising for REXX related products to RXT&T. I am very interested in what users of RXT&T think about this idea. Also, if you are interested in advertising in RXT&T, please send me an email indicating your interest.
I want to make it clear that at this time this is only something I'm thinking about. I do not have details about specific plans at this time. I only want to know if there is some interest in the idea. It will involve a lot of additional work for me to add advertising; therefore, I want to be sure that there is reasonable interest in it before I take the time to realize it.

Thanks again to Dave Hicks (see EMail Addresses) for looking through RXTT19 for grammatical errors.
