Description from the author: 
"This DLL, REXXSM2, wraps a REXX API around the SM/2 APIs. I wrote this so 
I could schedule entire directories to be indexed." 
The following APIs are implemented (For the corresponding SM/2 API's 
remove the RxSM2 and add Ehw. For example RxSM2ListServers corresponds to 
the SM2 API EhwListServers): 
 LoadRxSM2Funcs 
    Loads the REXXSM2 functions 
 UnLoadRxSM2Funcs 
    Unloads the REXXSM2 functions 
 RxSM2ListServers 
    Places the available SM2 servers into a stem - stem.0 contains the 
    number of servers found 
 RxSM2StartSession 
    Starts the session with a server 
 RxSM2OpenIndex 
    Opens an Index 
 RxSM2ScheduleDocument 
    Schedules a file to be indexed 
 RxSM2UpdateIndex 
    Starts the index updating 
 RxSM2CloseIndex 
    Closes the opened index 
 RxSM2EndSession 
    ends the session 
   
 Note:  "An article on the building of RexxSM2 was in the July/Aug 95 
        issue of OS/2 Professional and source code to the DLL is also 
        available on the web site above (see Internet - Web Pages)."
