Actually the publisher is once-great Wrox. The proper link is here. There a couple of citations to ARexx too.

I did see this book over at Boarders a few months ago. Does it really cover the Amiga version? See when I see REXX I just figure it's refering to the IBM version.

If you check out the contents page (PDF) on the Wrox page for the book, "Amiga Rexx" is listed on the section on commercial Rexx distributions.

It just occured to me. Why does it look like Al Franken on the cover?
