THE is a text editor similar to xedit which runs on s390/s390x z/VM.
If you think vi's or emacs UI is cryptic, try out THE and you'll be happy with
vi (or emacs) again. We ship it as a convinience for the z/VM administrators
who are used to xedit, but you really don't want it if you're not one of them.
I'm not sure about Regina, is anyone really interested in Rexx anymore ?
It is a requirement for THE and quite common on mainframes, but thats it.
In the Linux world Perl and Python are way more common, there's no need to 
learn another interpreter language.
