Uhm, Python also runs on any platform. As do Perl, Ruby, JavaScript, TCL . . . pretty much any of the higher-level "scripting" languages are cross-platform. Java tries to be a system language, what with the strong typing and the explicit compile step and stuff, so for it, the fact that you can compile once and run anywhere is a selling point. But for languages like Python et al, it's just part and parcel of their nature. -- Mark J. Reed <markjreed@...>
