REXXPACK infile.ext outfile.ext
infile.ext - Name of standard Rexx command file
outfile.ext - Name of optimized file to create
RexxPack will read infile.ext and create outfile.ext as an optimized
Rexx program. The new outfile.ext will be a single line Rexx program
that will run faster. The new program will also be difficult to
change. It is not completely compiled, but it is all on a single line.
You should in normal cases use CMD as the extension on the file. You
can, however, use any extension.
RexxPack will work with both OS/2 and host Rexx programs. To
optimize a host program, first download it as an ASCII text file,
then run RexxPack, then upload again as ASCII text. You will need to
extend the Lrecl on the upload to handle the full size of the file.
