  3. This version
  4. There are a number of different version levels associated with this implementation

  5. Filetypes
  6. At the moment, the filetypes used are unofficial and may conflict with others you use. When, and if, official filetypes are obtained then updates will be applied to use those instead

  7. Commands
  8. Implementation differences
  9. There are two implementations available.

    The second is the preferred one and has the following advantages.

    Why distribute both?

  10. Executing Rexx scripts
  11. There are two ways

    1. Create a file with one of the filetypes mentioned above and double click on it in the standard RISC OS manner.
    2. Create a file and use the REXX command to execute it i.e. REXX filename

  12. Limitations
  13. Executable only. No libraries yet, i.e. API not yet finished.

  14. RISC OS levels supported
  15. It has been tested on RISC OS 4.02 and 4.29 (the current SELECT version). I would be grateful for feedback on whether or not it works on other releases.
