REXX Advanced Programming Workshop Training

This course is intended for system programmers, application programmers, administrators, analysts, operators and others who need to increase their programming power through advanced REXX facilities. Skills learned can be applied to z/OS, Unix as well as vendor products that use REXX. Students will learn to use and manipulate compound variables in order to process REXX arrays, to create advanced parsing templates, to use interactive tracing and error trapping methods as well as how to debug complex REXX code. A working knowledge of basic REXX programming is a prerequisite for this class. When conducted at your site, the class can cover other platform environments as well. Hands-on lab exercises are used to reinforce lectures.
