Following the Perl Cookbook (by Tom Christiansen and Nathan Torkington, published by O'Reilly) spirit, the PLEAC Project aims to gather fans of programming, in order to implement the solutions in other programming languages.
In this document, you'll find an implementation of the Solutions of the Perl Cookbook in the REXX language.
REXX is an interpreted, general purpose programming language that is used for both system and applications programming, as well as scripting tasks on a number of platforms ranging from mainframes to hand-held devices. ANSI Standard of the REXX language released in 1996. The language has undergone extensive development over time, and is now available in two flavours: * REXX or 'classic' REXX * Object Oriented REXX or ooREXX The difference between these two flavours can be likened to that between the C, and C++ languages: syntactically similar, but the latter extended to support object oriented programming. More information is available at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/REXX Comments about the examples: * Incomplete examples are marked with the relevant PLEAC tags * Complete, but untranslateable, examples are so-marked * Extensive use of third-party libraries made [see Appendix] * Regina 3.3 interpreter used for testing [*NIX and Win32]
