DSSR works perfectly under DOS (in native Windows)

While having not used DOS for ages, I am glad to find that the DSSR version compiled for MinGW/MSYS on Windows works perfectly under this operating system (see screenshot below). The DSSR DOS command-line interface functions exactly the same as for Linux, Mac OS X, MinGW/MSYS, and CygWin. Among other possible usages, it allows for batch files to take advantage of DSSR.

Implementing DSSR in strict ANSI C as a self-contained and zero-dependent command-line program pays off enormously: it simplifies code maintenance and ensures that the program is applicable wherever a C compiler exists. The easy web interface to DSSR makes the program universally accessible.
