I've noticed that Python 2.4.2, Perl 5.8.8, Ruby 1.8.4, and various
Lua versions (and forks!) work on DOS via DJGPP. My main question is
this:  does anybody here regularly use them, either in pure DOS with
the DJGPP version or on other OSes (GNU/Linux, Win32, Mac OS X)?? And
if so, have you ever rebuilt any of them yourselves or do you just use
stock versions? And even more specifically, what do you use them for?
(But I'm not getting my hopes up since nobody responded to "make
alternatives" thread....)
