"An end-to-end introduction to object-oriented programming with the new 
release of Object REXX for OS/2 WARP. 
For years, programmers in IBM environments have used REXX as a quick, easy 
tool for software development. REXX is OS/2's built-in scripting language. 
Now, IBM builds on the benefits of REXX by introducing a new, 
object-oriented version, Object REXX. This is the only complete guide to 
object-oriented programming with IBM's new Object REXX. Better yet, it 
comes with a complete working copy of IBM's Object REXX product. Since 
REXX has a well-deserved reputation for ease of use, learning Object REXX 
may be the easiest way for procedural programmers to move into 
object-oriented programming. Learn how Object REXX implements objects, 
classes, instances, methods, and polymorphism. Walk through the entire 
application development process. Learn how Object REXX fits into IBM's SOM 
object model, and how it can be used to securely access IBM DB2 database 
resources."
