Mike Cowlishaw, IBM Fellow and inventor of REXX, commented, "The ANSI standard REXX language is available for almost every platform, thanks to the efforts of the open source community and RexxLA. I'm delighted that programmers and users everywhere will now benefit from the same freedom to use Object REXX."

"The Rexx Language Association is delighted that IBM is contributing Object REXX to the open source community," said Chip Davis, President of RexxLA.
