Snack should compile on any platform where SLang runs -- except Windows,
of course. If you mean "Windows, Linux, MacOS, MacOSX, OS/2 and any
other system where Python runs", there is no such library. In fact, if
you mean "Windows and Linux", there's nothing here also.

Text-mode interfaces are rather rare animals now.
