Subject: A port of GAP to OS/2 2.0 and DOS


I have started porting GAP 3.2 to emx, a free software development
system for OS/2 2.0 and DOS. I mainly did this because I wanted an
OS/2 version of GAP, but the resulting executable should run under
DOS, too.

This is my first try at porting GAP, and I have spent only very little
time on it. But if you need an OS/2 version or if you are curious
about another DOS version, give it a try!

I put the executable on
