DESCRIPTION

        RexxOpt optimizes your ARexx scripts by removing all information
        not necessary.  This results in a faster execution speed, making
        working with ARexx much more comfortable.

        When run in default mode (no switch given in command line) the
        following is done:

          - all unnecessary blank characters (ASCII 9, 32 and 160) are
            removed
          - all comments are removed
          - consecutive strings are merged to one single string
          - ';' is inserted in front of any DO within the script
          - all blank characters outside strings and comments are
            replaced by <space> (ASCII 32)
          - all (remaining) lines are put into one single line
          - a new comment line is put in front of the script because
            ARexx requires ARexx scripts to begin with a comment.

        This is V1.7, an update to V1.6.

NEW FEATURES

        - New switch DEOPT: (re)insert linefeeds
        - Minor code optimization concerning nested comments
        - New switch FIRSTCOMMENT: Don't strip first comment
        - Filehandling rewritten: it is no longer necessary to provide a
          destination filename. This introduced some new error messages and
          made some of the old obsolete.
        - Titlecomment and filecomment are now set according to current mode
          (optimize/deoptimize).

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

        You need AmigaOS 2.0 or better to run RexxOpt.

        Additionally it would be a good idea to have ARexx installed on
        your system since it makes not much sense to optimize ARexx scripts
        when you can't use them.
