Using the translator

This section of the document tells you how to use the translator package. It assumes you have successfully installed Java and NetRexx, and have tested that the hello.nrx testcase can be compiled and run, as described in the Testing the NetRexx Installation section.

The NetRexx translator may be used as a compiler or as an interpreter (or it can do both in a single run, so parsing and syntax checking are only carried out once). It can also be used as simply a syntax checker.

When used as a compiler, the intermediate Java source code may be retained, if desired. Automatic formatting, and the inclusion of comments from the NetRexx source code are also options.
