Value:

The alternateLanguages function returns a list of script languages, one per line.

Comments:

Mac OS and OS X systems support system-wide script languages (such as AppleScript) through the Open Scripting Architecture (OSA). You can write statements in any OSA language and execute them using the do command.

Windows systems support scripting through the "active scripting" functionality of the Windows Script Host. You can write statements in any "active scripting" language and execute them using the do command.
