The following examples have been collected to give you an overview of the power and limitations of Rexx2Nrx, and how the various options may be used to adapt Rexx2Nrx to your personal needs.
Click at the link below Rexx first, to see the original classic Rexx program,
and then on the NetRexx link to see the translated NetRexx Program.
The LOG link will show you the LOG-file of the translation, and finally
the Purpose link will contain some documentation and notes when appropriate.
Show time in a verbative form ('the' example in the books of M.F.Cowlishaw, author of Rexx and NetRexx)

using the 'symbol' and 'value' functions, and back to the roots of interpreted REXX
simple Rexx trial program to show the handling of stems and the RexxMsg routines.
A utility program to pack a bunch of source-files together for filetransfer to another machine (with automatic parts explosion!)
the companion utility to unpack the source-files again on the target machine
