I wanted to add to the good comments/suggestions from others.
One thing that you could do is to use REXX to do all your GUI and
then when speed becomes an issue (or for the parts that it is
an issue) make DLLs in C to call from your REXX program.
I also wanted to point out that there is an alternative to VX-REXx called
Vispro REXX. This makes an EXE which doesn't need you to send a DLL
