D-Bus Rexx Language Binding

Activity: Talk or presentationScience to science

Description

The Linux operating system has been gaining more and more support in the past years, such that the availability of ooRexx on that platform has turned out to be a great productivity addition. Almost unnoticed from the public, Linux has been employing a new message bus, dubbed "D-Bus", used e.g. by the kernel to signal kernel events that can be intercepted by subscribed programs. In addition any D-Bus-aware Linux program can be exploited and programmed using the "D-Bus" infrastructure. This talk introduces a new ooRexx package that makes it possible for Rexx programmers to take advantage of D-Bus, enabling powerful ooRexx (script) programs. This support will also become available for MacOSX and Windows, for which D-Bus ports exist.
