Description from the author:
"I've been very surprised when I've found that the OS/2 version of the world's best known spreadsheet Lotus 123 does not allow to use REXX as a scripting language. So, 'cause one our client will have a need to use Lotus 123G in the client server environment to process some data from the object database having no Datalence drivers for it. So, we have got to write some Lotus 123G interface for this database. We have known that the above object database will have an ObjectREXX interface (more exactly SOM interface ;-). Therefore, we have decided to build SOM interface classes for Lotus 123G. The interfaces of this classes are included in this package. They could be directly used from ObjectREXX programs. But some testing shows us that the current beta of ObjectREXX could not be generally used as a macro language for 123G. The loading time of the ObjectREXX interpreter on the 486DX2 machine with 8M RAM is not, imho, suitable for this purpose. Therefore, the decision to build the API for an ordinary REXX has been made."
