Description from the author: 
"RxIni is a fast Rexx-extention to read System-Inifiles. 
Why code another function dll, when there is SysIni() ?? 
Well ever tried to read and write large amounts of data using SysIni()? 
If you did, you have the answer. SysIni() is boring in terms of speed and 
Usability. To get rid of SysIni() I wrote RxIni. 
And Yes it is about 100 times faster than SysIni() ! 
How could one achieve that speed. Well the answer is that simple ! RxIni 
does not close the Inifile after every action. And Rxini uses a more 
advanced scheme to access the Rexx VariablePool then SysIni(). 
You work with RxIni, as if you would handle a File or Database. You Open 
it, obtain a FileHandle, work with this Filehandle and Close the Inifile, 
after you did your work." 
The DLL provides the following functions: 
   *  RxIniLoadFuncs 
   *  RxIniDropFuncs 
   *  RxOpenIni 
   *  RxCloseIni 
   *  RxIniReadAllApp 
   *  RxIniReadApp 
   *  RxIniWriteApp 
   *  RxIniDeleteApp 
   *  RxIniReadKey 
   *  RxIniWriteKey 
   *  RxIniDeleteKey
