* :kwd.FILE I/O REXX EXEC2
* :abs.IOX is a file I/O utility developed to utilise the direct
*  direct variables interface introduced with REXX and now in EXEC2 as
*  well.  Although EXECIO exists as the CMS product for such operations
*  experience has shown that many users prefer to use IOX.  This may be
*  because the syntax is more helpful, there is greater function or
*  simply because IOX was there first.  Whatever the reason IOX provides
*  an easy way of reading/writing files, using the Card reader, punch
*  and printer.  Multiple records may be handled in a single operation,
*  and more.
