in reply to Dual language

From Perl Monks circa 2001: BooK's C is Perl response to Ovid's Perl is C.

Jerome Quelin show-cased an octo-lingual! (perl, c, c++, befunge, brainf**k, python, ook, html/javascript) program that computed the Fibonacci series in a YAPC::Europe 2003 talk. (If anyone has a copy of this program, please let us know).

The above info was got from the "Multi-Lingual" section of The Lighter Side of Perl Culture (Part III): Obfu.

    Wow that is impressive. I discovered the first example also compiles as C++ and the second example also does if I change void to int. I guess that would make it tri-lingual? Would love to see an 8 language code though. BTW I actually created these without seeing the other C/Perl codes. I didn't even know about them. Also in http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=133308. I don't understand why use  #ifdef _FSTDIO where a simple #if 1 would also do the same.
