Windows Programming for Everyone
This course will teach you how to program on your Windows computer by building working programs using the Rexx programming language.
Rexx is the Perfect Programming Language to learn quickly and easily.
Rexx is easy to learn because its like English, uses variables that are typeless and can hold any kind of information, and it provides wonderful interactive tracing capability.
You only need your Windows PC and a download of the free Rexx programming software to get started.
Watch the lectures in full screen and high resolution mode for the best viewing experience, and download and review the source code file included with each lecture.
To get the most out of this course you should create and run each program on your computer.
In this course you'll learn about variables, program loops, reading and writing files, functions and how to put them all together in a working program.
You can build applications that are simple but time saving, or large applications to track your business operation.
We’ll build our programs using Windows Notepad, and run them by double clicking the program name in Windows Explorer.
You can copy or download information from the internet and shape it in the most useful fashion, or work with information from email or attachments.
Rexx is the best language for everyday applications. I use Rexx programs to search for files, reorganize my bank and bill pay accounts, and track the movements of stocks and options to determine best entry price..
Rexx will benefit the beginner and the expert. The beginner has the easiest possible way to learn to program and the expert learns a valuable tool for programming in Windows.
The course has over five hours of step by step instruction that will prepare you for writing programs on your own. You can create programs that help you be more productive. In addition, the course provides a collection of useful programs to get you started.
- The course is for everyone from beginner to expert
- The beginner will be guided from start to finish

Here's the Assignment
call the new program RunAllRexx
1) create a program to list all the rexx programs and run them
2) show a menu with each program name
3) provide a selection of the program and how to run it
4) also provide a selection for editing the program
for edit, use notepad
for running the program, allow the choice of:
rexx.exe - runs the program normally (default if you double-click the name)
rexxpaws.exe - keeps the console window open at program end
rexxhide.exe - hides the console window
Now its your turn.
The answer to each True/False question is True, or at least it should be, as you are challenged to write each program on your own.
Create the programs from scratch using the MyNewRexx program to get you started and use your imagination along with the programming skills you have learned.
Good luck, and happy programming.
