Description from the author: 
"FILEREXX.DLL is a REXX Function Library.  It adds "commands" to the REXX 
language, which a REXX script (i.e., program) can call.  These commands 
offer alternatives to the REXX file reading/writing routines which make it 
possible to access the same files from multiple running scripts (i.e., 
allow file sharing). FileRexx also makes it much easier to read/write 
files containing binary values.  There are also routines which vastly 
simplify device (i.e., driver) I/O, and make some driver control possible 
which standard REXX doesn't allow.  Finally, FileRexx offers a lot more 
parsing options when reading a line, thus eliminating the need to parse a 
line into separate pieces, or using TRANSLATE to change the case."
