ADDPATH NT/DOS command line script

(Yes, We say script now instead of batch ... times are changing).

Here is a stupid little batch file that I have written several times. It adds a single argument to the path in your current command-line session (so it is not permanent).

@echo off
if "%1" == "" goto end_script
set path=%path%;%1

Iron Languages on DLR

The "Iron" languages that run on the .NET DLR (Dynamic Language Runtime) are making progress. I just noticed that IronRuby has a release on RubyForge.

To be honest though, I have moved to Python as my script language of choice, with Perl as the ever-present fallback. Iron Python seems like it is coming along nicely. Iron Python 2 can even host itself. I can't wait for MonoDevelop or SharpDevelop to support IronPython on Windows.
