Some time ago I posted an idea that customers be allowed to code in OML Allow customers to code in OML . I learnt from the recent conference that this idea hasn't gone down well. OK then, here's a better idea. Given that NCL is being allowed to decompose, please do a really good job of implementing REXX in Netmaster. Perhaps use OPS/MVS REXX. Enable the REXX to do everything that OML can do. REXX is a popular language and will enhance the usability of Netmaster and people will be more inclined to develop for it (nobody wants to learn NCL or OML).


Here's another idea. Perhaps a conversion program to convert code from NCL to (This wonderful new ) REXX might be worth considering.


Thankyou for considering this.

You should really change your mind on this. REXX is far more used than your own language.  If you want this product to exist in the future you should really reconsider that.  There are a lot more REXX  programmers than NCL.  You are being short sighted at a critical time where companies are questioning what values this product brings to them.

Not planned. NetMaster REXX is a limited implementation intended to help migrate from NetView.
