Thank you also, Dave!!

This is mostly as I recall, which isn't a lot...  But the interpretive
nature of REXX was most enjoyable.

However, I'm still of the opin you can get just as much or more done from
CL/HLL as DDL/REXX, but maybe that's just me and a few hundred thousand
folks.  I know there are millions that "know" otherwise.  Otoh, I'll add
that my coding experience was limited to being on OS/2 REXX and the app
didn't require SQL.. so, yeah, could stand to look at 400-REXX (and..

(Btw, imo/o overzealous quantitative application of the 80/20 rule tends to
eliminate these particular lowly hundreds-of-thousands in the marketspace,
entirely from the equation.  Thus, they see hardly ANY enhancements,
not-so-amazingly, as the 80% get roughly 100% of the
development/documentation/UI-marketing resources at IBM.  (Dunno how much
revenue the 20% kick into the formula, exactly, but that don't apparently
signify anyhoo.)  Also don't know what percentage of
day-in-day-out-productive-users that 20% kicks in.. 50 or more??)
