Suntan Special version 0.66

Suntan Special Web edition

Creating Applications

To create your own application, you will make a subdirectory with the name of your application, and a REXX program which is called cdi.cmd. This subdirectory must be located in a directory listed by the sourceDir setting.

Use one of the existing applications as a template to create your new application. The first item in the REXX program must be a comment. The first comment of a Suntan Special application is special -- it contains the keywords Description and Copyright. The text of the comment between these keywords is the description of the application.

Suntan Special will call your REXX program with one argument, the applications directory. The installation directory will usually be a subdirectory of the applications directory.

There are a number of REXX programs available to help with installation and configuration tasks. These are documented in the Suntan Special API.
