Description from the author: 
"Rexx Dialog allows an OS/2 REXX script to open multiple PM windows with 
list and drop boxes, spin/push/radio/checkmark buttons, sliders, menus, 
etc. Add a full PM (i.e., visual) interface to a REXX script. Also, easily 
add a visual REXX interface to a C program. Much smaller than full-blown 
commercial Visual REXX packages, and it's free!" 
This is a really great package for using the PM interface in REXX 
programs! I strongly suggest you take a look at Rexx Dialog before using 
(and buying!) one of the commercial visual REXX packages. 
One disadvantage of this package: You cannot pass parameter to programs 
using Rexx Dialog. But, of course, there's a workaround for it. 

Note:  See the program REXXCC/2 which is part of REXXCC v3+ for an example 
       of using Rexx Dialog. 
 
 Note:  REXX Dialog seems not to work with Object REXX.
