I'm not familiar with REXX's parse statement.  I took a look at:


to get a feel for what the parse command does.  From what it looks like,
you could possibly use string.split(), but that's an unsatisfactory
answer.  There is no built-in that does all that REXX's parse does,

However, this will interest you: I did find something by Tim Peters:


where he talks about a REXX parse module implementation that he wrote.  
You might want to talk to him about it.  The source code looks like it's
all there, so you should be able to work with it.
