REXXCC can be used to "compile" or compress an REXX program.

REXXCC "compiles" an OS/2 REXX program by substituting the source code with mostly any text. This is possible because the OS/2 REXX interpreter stores a tokenized copy of each executed REXX program in the EAs of the program. If you execute an OS/2 REXX program, the OS/2 REXX interpreter first checks if the tokenized copy in the EAs is still valid and, if so, executes the tokenized copy and ignores the source code.

REXXCC "compresses" an OS/2 REXX program by deleting mostly all superfluous whitespaces, all linefeeds and all comments from the sourcefile.
