JScript .NET:


My whole experience with .NET is related instead to mono.  But what is possible
in one, should be possible in the other, surely.  Mono has a rather impressive
list of supported languages at:


It's a shame Perl's not on there, although I had previously thought it was due
to their FAQ:

	Windows has compilers that target the virtual machine from a number of
	languages: (http://msdn.microsoft.com/net/thirdparty/default.asp#lang)
	Managed C++, Java Script, Eiffel, Component Pascal, APL, Cobol, Perl,
	Python, Scheme, Smalltalk, Standard ML, Haskell, Mercury and Oberon.

Not quite sure what to make of that.
