Release date: 
Sunday, 23 September, 2012




VisPro/Rexx is a Visual Programming tool that is completely integrated with the Workplace Shell and offers multiple views, drag-drop interaction, popup menus, settings notebooks, direct editing, all CUA '91 features and supports the OS/2 Font and Color palettes. The author, Dave Hock, has authorized that it become freeware, which means that anyone can write software using this toolkit freely and distribute it with any license you want. The package includes the original book in pdf format which introduces in great detail all the features of the toolkit, and describes with equal precision every function, with all the available parameters, is also full of examples and is easy to read, feature not negligible given the argument's vastness.

The development environment uses a lot of drag and drop and pop-ups, automatically introducing the related code, features that benefit much, allowing you to concentrate exclusively on the routines of yours projects.

Unlike other similar packages, VisPro/Rexx also offers an excellent incremental reporting system that lets you keep track of all the changes made to the code, very useful for developers Team and for revision.

It is possible to cronologically display not only the modified code, but each change in the layout is displayed in graphical mode!
The development environment integrates itself seamlessly into WorkPlaceShell, includes components for managing databases and networks and is expandable using its toolkit for the development of additional objects SOM, available as a separate package including source code examples.

This software is distributed as compressed package. You have to download and manually install it; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too.
