ARexx is a scripting language for automating tasks in Amiga systems. It debuted with version 2.0 of the Amiga operating system and has since been ported to other platforms. The language's name stands for "Amiga ARchitecture Extended," reflecting its role in extending the capabilities of the original REXX programming language developed at IBM. ARexx scripts can communicate with any program that has an ARexx port, allowing users to create macros, custom interfaces or complex sequences of operations across different applications on their computer systems. With its cross-platform compatibility and intuitive syntax, ARexx continues to have a niche following among enthusiasts who appreciate its power as a tool for batch processing operations and more unique uses like creative multimedia automation on vintage platforms.
