It's there all right. I haven't used it for quite a while. I think the
last time was about V2R2. It's quit powerful for text manipulation. I
used it for converting some cobol source back then and it worked well,
but it was a very poor performer - so much so that it wasn't usable for
a production jobs. Maybe it's better now. That would be nice. You
execute it with the STRREXPRC command. Procedures are stored in
tokenized form a little like the old databuster basic.
