req: some arexx advice...

curious if someone who is proficient in arexx wouldn't mind briefly looking over some code i've written. about 2 weeks ago i started teaching myself arexx in my spare time (which is very little). i started with the idea of writing a very simple bpm calculator for octamed... but eventually it evolved into something a bit bigger. as it is now, it works + is quite handy... but before i release it to the public, i'd value any suggestions on speeding it up, improving routines, etc. i'm pretty sure there are functions that would achieve the results i want that i'm not yet aware of. anyways, if that sounds interesting to someone, please give me a shout, thanx!

You may just post/upload your code. I`m not sure what`s your target with a "bpm calculator" or what you mean by that. After a short look in OSS ARexx.doc I noticed commands like this:
Command:        SG_GETTEMPO
Result:         Returns the main SPD or BPM tempo.

Command:        SG_GETTEMPOLPB
Result:         Returns the Lines per Beat value (only used in BPM mode).

Command:        SG_GETTEMPOMODE
Result:         Returns the current tempo mode (either 'SPD' or 'BPM').

Command:        SG_GETTEMPOTPL
Result:         Returns the Pulses per Line value (a.k.a. the secondary tempo).
That means you should be able to get BPM by using those commands.
