I also remember at least in conjunction with using MUI on the Amiga
it was quite easy to implement an ARexx interface: You just created
a structure containing all your commands and the corresponding functions
in your code and MUI did handle the rest.. (like open the ARexx port,
receiving/sending data and so on..)

Right, these are the questions which are important..
