"NetRexx is a new human-oriented programming language, designed as an 
effective and simple alternative to the Java language.  With NetRexx, you 
can create programs and applets for the Java environment faster and more 
easily than by programming in Java.  Using and writing Java classes is 
especially easy in NetRexx, as the different types of numbers and strings 
that Java expects are handled automatically by the language. 
Inspired by two very different programming languages, Rexx and Java, 
NetRexx blends the easy-to-learn syntax of Rexx with the robustness and 
portability of the Java environment.  The result is a language which is 
tuned for both scripting and application development, and is therefore 
truly general-purpose. 
Mike Cowlishaw, IBM Fellow, wrote his first interpreter while still at 
school in Bath, England.  For over 25 years he has been designing and 
implementing compilers, interpreters, editors, and productivity tools for 
both mainframes and personal computers. 
In this book, Mike both introduces and defines the NetRexx language; these 
descriptions are complemented by a discussion of the key design principles 
of the language."
