16-bit REXX API, CMD.EXE and other

Hi All.

If someone of your tried to install osFree REXX then, most probably, you have a problems
with executing REXX scripts from CMD.EXE (and also some problems with WPS execution,
but this is not question for present time). Actually, just calling of 32-bit api via 16-bit
wrappers doesn't help because CMD.EXE has too small stack and heap sizes. As result, we
can't execute rexx interpreter.

So, we need an solution to execute REXX from old 16-bit programs which has limited stack/heap
sizes. We can, of course, execute external process with REXX file as argument, but such solution
is wrong because executable often install subcommand handler which need to call from REXX
interpreter.

Is there any ideas?

wbr,
Yuri

No. This is only 16-bit related things. Not enough stack. Still have no idea how to resolve this.
