Another short post (what is it with me this week, all my entries seems to be short and ostensive rather than networked and contextual)
Having recently noted that Sun is reaching out to the dynamic scripting language communities, by way of Tim, it made sense to follow up with this little tidbit. It turns out that IBM’s Object REXX is being open sourced.
Rexx is widely used in mainframe and OS/2 shops, but runs pretty much anywhere. as an IBM product it makes no sense in the world of open dynamic scripting that LAMP is driving. But as an open source project it becomes somewhat more interesting. I don’t expect Object REXX to grow in bursty fashion, but i wanted to flag another scripting environment joining the open community.
