.... long time after the INVENTION of classic Rexx (invented by M.F.
Cowlishaw, You all know),
some major IBM clients did want to have an *IBM Rexx Compiler* (sic!).
IBM, those days, decided to outsource that development to a thought-ful
Israelic Company ...
... (can't recall the name) ... BUT:
The Testing of this those times necessary IBM REXX Compiler has been
the those times well known:
IBM Vienniese Labarotories (headed by Prof. ZEMANEK, the inventor
of MaiLüfterl, as well),
here in Vienna, Austria ....
+ *AND* : most important (from the HISTORIC Viewpoint of
Mr. Walter Pachl, at those times, has been working at the Vienniese IBM
and has been the *REAL HEAD* of those Testing the IBM Rexx Compiler
Since then, I think he is well known to any and all Rexx Lovers as one
of the most
thoroughful people I, at least, ever personally met!
Now, as I do know his Wife Christel also since Years, I have been always
how SHE could live with him (always too much and many times interested in
his computer job) ???
Answer is very simple:
They did fell into Love, some 50 Years ago
The did STICK together, in any amnd all case(s)
Thus, I think it's time to say : Thank You, Mrs. Christel Pachl, for
IBM Rexx COMPILER beeing CREATED!
Let UsAll celebrate their happyness and freeness for each other, all
over the Years!
Please Thomas stop that
All this has no place on this list and is wrong to a large extent
There was no outsourcing to Israel
and Prof Zemanek was not the head of the IBM Lab any more when we made the compiler
