Name REXXCC - a REXX "compiler" Version v3.21 Author Bernd Schemmer Distrib. Freeware Type "compiled" REXX program Price - Source BBS Name: RCnnn.* where nnn is the version number
REXXCC "compiles" an OS/2 REXX program by substituting the source code with any text. This is possible because the OS/2 REXX interpreter stores a tokenized copy of each executed REXX program in the EAs of the program. If you execute an OS/2 REXX program, the OS/2 REXX interpreter first checks, if the tokenized copy in the EAs is still valid and, if so, executes the tokenized copy and ignores the source code.
Beginning with version 3.00 REXXCC can also compress REXX programs (this means: delete all leading and trailing whitespaces, all linefeeds and all comments).
Beginning with version 3.10 REXXCC also contains a REXX program to unpack packed or compressed REXX files.
Beginning with version 3.20 REXXCC also contains a REXX program to use the macro space for creating token images of REXX programs.
REXXCC is a command line program. But there is also a PM front-end for REXXCC called REXXCC/2 in the archive. REXXCC/2 uses Rexx Dialog for the PM interface.
The current version of REXXCC is always available at the CompuServe in the same library as RXT&T (see Distribution)
Note: The format of the token image for REXX programs is the same since OS/2 version 2.1. So you can use a REXX program "compiled" with REXXCC on any OS/2 version since 2.1. But: You can't use a "compiled" REXX program with the new Object-Oriented REXX (see also "Compiling" REXX programs).
