 How to execute OS2 edit macro from a REXX program

I am running a REXX program under OS2. From this program I would like
to EDIT a file and run an edit macro against it.
In VM the command would be XEDIT fn ft (PROF macro
How would I do this in REXX under OS2. Do I need any add on software?

Thanking you in advance,

Geoff Litman

Geoff, if you are serious about doing this, I suggest you get a copy of
KEDIT from Mansfield Software.  It works very much like XEDIT, with a
bunch of PC-specific enhancements.  It does support profiles, and I
have done just what you suggest with 5Gb of data on a PC.  Took 3 days
to run.  And the pre- and post-processing was in PL/1, which is a great
implementation under OS/2.  Very much industrial strength.   Dave
