SAL Home PROGRAM Languages & Compilers


NetRexx is a new human-oriented programming language, designed to be an effective, simple, and complete alternative to the Java language. With NetRexx, you can create applications and applets for the Java environment faster and more easily than by programming in Java. Using Java classes is especially easy in NetRexx, as the different types of numbers and strings that Java expects are handled automatically by the language.
