Title OS and Rexx interpreter neutral 'smart' application tailoring
Speaker Les Koehler
Abstract

Les will present two 'smart' ways to do 'Application Tailoring' that are
independent of the Operating System and the Rexx interpreter being used.

The first way is a Rexx function that is specific to one application,
does syntax checking and error reporting.

The second is more free-form, mostly intended for a 'tool set' and
allows the developer to gradually migrate internal program tailoring to
a common external Rexx function.

Both techniques are currently being used and examples will be shown.
