Yes - it is an optional part of an IBM PC-DOS 7 installation. I believe
that someone mentioned that that OS will run on any Xt or better PC w/
512k memory or higher. Of course the other PC OS with great built in
support for Rexx is OS/2. I do not know about any ports to Microsoft OSes
nor any of the variety of UNIXes available for Intel machines. Nor do I
know what relation this (Rexx w/ PC-DOS 7) may bear to the REXX-88 product
that you mention - does that run on MS DOS e.g.?
