REXXMAST ARexx
Purpose: To start ARexx.
Format: REXXMAST
Template: (none)
Path: SYS:System/RexxMast
REXXMAST is the ARexx control program.

There are two methods to start ARexx automatically; placing the RexxMast icon in to WBStartup drawer, or adding the command to the Startup-Sequence. When Amiga OS4.0 is installed it is already defined in the Startup-Sequence.

There are two ways to start AARexx manually; double-click on the REXXMAST icon in the System folder on the Workbench, or starting it by typing REXXMAST in a Shell.

If you attempt to start REXXMAST while it is already running, REXXMAST will display the version and copyright information, together with a message stating that it is already active.
