MUIRexx is a program which serves as an interface
between ARexx (Copyright 1987, William S. Hawes) and
MagicUserInterface (Copyright 1993-96, Stefan Stuntz).
MUIRexx does not provide complete access to all of the
capabilities of MagicUserInterface (MUI), however,
quite a lot of capability is implemented in MUIRexx
such as notification, icon buttons, and application
objects (objects that react to icons dropped on them),
as well as many standard MUI objects. Complete
graphical user interfaces as well as full applications
can be developed using MUIRexx and ARexx macros.
Additionally, it is also possible to dynamically change
or add objects after the application has been created.
