Can you give an example of what you mean? NetRexx reduces the amount of
framework you have to put around simple programs, but it allows essentially
the same framework as Java for more complicated classes.
% Not all code can be buried in a class with properties and methods.
% There is always the code in the main or applet which ties everything
But the main or applet is just a class with properties and methods. Please
