The Rexx LA home page is at www.rexxla.org. The home page provides a wealth of information on the Rexx language, including standards, FAQs, contacts, the newsletter, and the annual Rexx symposium. It also has many links to the home pages of various Rexx interpreters, tools, packages, books, technical articles, and other informational resources. The Rexx Language Association supports a mailing list, which is a mechanism to broadcast questions and view answers from Rexx users worldwide.
