Any chance of current Tidy for DOS ? (Users)

Is anyone aware of a recent DOS port of TIDY ?

I have v.2412 from 2001, and that seems to be the most recent DOS version I can find.

By the looks of what's here... http://www.oocities.org/nickbeee/tidy386/
you have the final DOS build.

Unless you can build your own from the latest SRC code....

http://tidy.sourceforge.net/

Nope. That would be out of my league.

Compiling from source isn't that hard for tidy.

FANTASTIC !!!

Thank you very much roytam.

And for those who don't have 7z for DOS...
here are roytam's new compiles of TIDY.EXE and TAB2SPACE.EXE
extracted from his 7z archive and placed into a ZIP archive instead.

Maybe not hard for C-speakers, but I do not speak C.

Thank you, Roytam.

(I don't know what part you don't speak, but the C build systems (autoconf,make) always scared me more than the language)

I tried to teach myself C, and I failed. Several times.
Life is too short, so I use a different language in DOS.

I am OK in Linux where all I need to know is configure/make/make install.
Beyond that, C remains a foreign language.

So I am always grateful to C speakers for the software they write.

since tidy supplied a generic makefile, I used that one instead of trying to use autofools.

Had seen the post. Just providing alternative versions, and some info/observations.
