Recently I have tried the 0.98(?) version of Python on DOS.
It was disappointing because of the limit memory of (standard) DOS.
I think it's much better not even to try to port Python on (standard) DOS
but immediately move to using either the emx or djgpp (GNU-CC) plus the
DOS-extender. These extenders are very robust, run on nearly any PC with a
80386 -... and use 32 bits for data and addressing. These packages
even try to simulate many Unix library functions so the port will be much
Furthermore, at least emx provides OS2 support, so there will be only
one port of Python.
Has anybody tried this. Is there a makefile plus supplementary library
for this around?
