What is REXX?
REXX is a programming language designed by Michael Cowlishaw of
IBM UK Laboratories. In his own words: "REXX is a procedural
language that allows programs and algorithms to be written in a
clear and structured way."

Syntactically, REXX doesn't look that different from any other
procedural language. Here's a simple REXX program:

/* Count some numbers */

say "Counting..."
do i = 1 to 10
say "Number" i

Versions are included for PC, UNIX and MAC operating systems.

Normally BRexx is Y2K compliant, but it depends on the
compiler that has been used for the compilation of the interpter
and the user's code. The DATE() function has various options
date()=date(n) -> dd mmm yyyy /* Normalised */
date(s) -> yyyymmdd /* Sorted */
date(e) -> dd/mm/yy /* European */
date(o) -> yy/mm/dd /* Ordered */
date(u) -> mm/dd/yy /* USA */
The user must prefer the Normalised or the Sorted format
in order to ensure consistent functionality of his script for
dates prior and after 2000.
