7 <xref role="runtime" linkend="python2"/> is used by many scripts - most are
8 unmaintained. Many invoke <filename>/usr/bin/env python</filename>, a couple
9 invoke <filename>/usr/bin/python</filename>. It is not generally known if
10 these will work with a symlink to <command>python3</command> (as used in some
11 distros) and two from pythontex invoke <command>python2</command>.
12 <xref role="runtime" linkend="ruby"/> is used by some scripts, mostly within
13 mtx_context which is part of <application>conTeXt</application>, but also
14 for one or two others, such as match_parens, which are generally useful.
15 The perl module <ulink
16 url="">Tk</ulink>,
17 which needs to be run from an X11 session to run the tests and
18 requires <xref role="runtime" linkend="tk"/>, is used by one of the scripts
19 for ptex (Japanese vertical writing), can be used by a conTeXt texfind script,
20 and is needed for texdoctk (a GUI interface for finding documentation files
21 and opening them with the appropriate viewer).
22 <command>ps2pdf</command>, from <xref role='runtime' linkend='gs'/>, is
23 used by some utilities and scripts.
