       jrunscript - command line script shell

       jrunscript [ options ] [ arguments... ]

             Options, if used, should follow immediately after the command

             Arguments, if used, should follow immediately after options or
             command name.

       jrunscript is a command line script shell. jrunscript supports both an
       interactive (read-eval-print) mode and a batch (-f option) mode of
       script execution. This is a scripting language independent shell. By
       default, JavaScript is the language used, but the -l option can be used
       to specify a different language. Through Java to scripting language
       communication, jrunscript supports "exploratory programming" style.

       NOTE: This tool is experimental and may not be available in future
       versions of the JDK.

          -classpath path
             Specify where to find the user's .class files that are accessed
             by the script.

          -cp path
             This is a synonym for -classpath path

             Set a Java system property.

             Pass <flag> directly to the Java virtual machine on which
             jrunscript is run.

          -l language
             Use the specified scripting language. By default, JavaScript is
             used. Note that to use other scripting languages, you also need
             to specify the corresponding script engine's jar file using -cp
             or -classpath option.

          -e script
             Evaluate the given script. This option can be used to run "one
             liner" scripts specified completely on the command line.

          -encoding encoding
             Specify the character encoding used while reading script files.

          -f script-file
             Evaluate the given script file (batch mode).

          -f -
             Read and evaluate a script from standard input (interactive

             Output help message and exit.

             Output help message and exit.

             List all script engines available and exit.

       If [arguments...] are present and if no -e or -f option is used, then
       the first argument is the script file and the rest of the arguments, if
       any, are passed as script arguments. If [arguments..] and -e or -f
       option are used, then all [arguments..] are passed as script arguments.
       If [arguments..], -e and -f are missing, interactive mode is used.
       Script arguments are available to a script in an engine variable named
       "arguments" of type String array.

   Executing inline scripts
       jrunscript -e "print('hello world')"
       jrunscript -e "cat('http://java.sun.com')"

   Use specified language and evaluate given script file
       jrunscript -l js -f test.js

   Interactive mode
       js> print('Hello World\n');
       Hello World
       js> 34 + 55
       js> t = new java.lang.Thread(function() { print('Hello World\n'); })
       js> t.start()
       js> Hello World


   Run script file with script arguments
       jrunscript test.js arg1 arg2 arg3

       test.js is script file to execute and arg1, arg2 and arg3 are passed to
       script as script arguments. Script can access these using "arguments"

       If JavaScript is used, then before evaluating any user defined script,
       jrunscript initializes certain built-in functions and objects. These
       JavaScript built-ins are documented in jsdocs @
