They will.

You have the option to build a self contained app (no additional vpr
runtime needed) or a small version that requires the runtime files.
can compile your scripts in a standard mode that can be read with a
simple text editior or encrypt it or even compile it into

Not quite that nice. But the drag-and-drop programming is terrific!

>- Good libraries for socket, namedpipe, ipc

It's all available "third party!"

>- Small en fast executables 8).

Well, eventhough the scripts are compiled, it's STILL run like a rexx
script. That is, through an interpreter...

My advice is...  If it's visual and rexx, you HAVE to go VisproRexx.
But don't bother buying the Bronze version, you'll soon outgrow it
desire the extra features of the Gold version. Go GOLD.

VX-Rexx had about about same functionality as VisPro, but since Watcom
got bought out they have ceased development......go with VisPro now.

I used VX-RExx a lot and liked it pretty well, but the above is
overriding in my opinion for new purchase.....
