The new version 5.0 of the message based object-oriented programming language ooRexx ("open object-oriented REXX") is easy to learn, yet powerful. This article introduces some of the new language features with nutshell examples that at the same time demonstrate its power when deployed in different operating system environments. The modern native API of ooRexx makes it in addition very easy to extend the language with new functionality and deploy it as a macro language for any C++-based application.
