Hi,

I saw a lot of DLR-based language appearing recently as IronPython, IronRuby.

What is the distinction between JScript .NET and other ones except the lanuage syntax

BTW: i am not sure whether JScript .NET is DLR-based.

Thanks,

Ricky.

If you are talking about differences in IronPython/IronRuby/Managed JScript they are all scripting languages based on DLR (Dynamic Language Runtime). DLR provides a way to implement a scripting language and they all generate the same intermediate code. However as you said they have different syntax.

For difference between different flavors of JScript that Microsoft ships, please refer to this blog:
