Parameters eaten by the REXX Interpreter


The following parameters, when passed to a REXX program, are interpreted 
and eaten by the REXX Interpreter himself (see also Parameters eaten by 
the CMD.EXE): 
 // 
    This parameter delimiter is reserved for the REXX interpreter. You 
    can't use it for program-specific parameters. Note that this 
    limitation is removed in Object-Oriented REXX 
 //t 
    Create the tokenized version of the program without executing it 
 
 To use the parameter //t in Object-Oriented REXX you can add other 
 parameter(s). Example: 

  
 D:\Test> test2.cmd //t dfad
      3 *-* parse arg thisargs
        >>>   "//t dfad"
 
 D:\Test> test2.cmd //t //t
      3 *-* parse arg thisargs
        >>>   "//t //t"
 
 D:\Test> test2.cmd //t
 
 
 
 (see also Workaround for the // limitation for a method to workaround for 
 these limitations).
