jjs has capabilities that
jrunscript doesn't, and
jrunscript has an initialization file. Below are a few simple examples of
nashorn> alert("hello, InfoWorld");
script error: ReferenceError: "alert" is not defined in <STDIN> at line number 1
This doesn't work because
alert() is a browser/DOM function. D'oh! I could have sworn that worked in Rhino, though.
nashorn> print("Hello, InfoWorld");
This does work because
nashorn> var a = 1;
nashorn> var b = "1";
nashorn> print (a+b);
a+b, consider this:
nashorn> print (typeof(a+b));
Nashorn supports the "#" character as a leading line comment marker, so
chmod utility to make it runnable.
You'll find a scripting mode in
jrunscript seems to lack. In scripting mode, expressions inside back-ticks are passed to the outer shell for evaluation:
$ jjs -scripting
jjs> print ('ls');

Scripting mode also enables an extension for "heredocs," which are basically multiline strings in a format familiar to Perl and Ruby programmers.
By the way, the arrow keys on the Mac keyboard don't work properly for line editing in the
jjs shell. But there is a hack for that: You can
brew install rlwrap and use that as part of your alias for
jjs in your .bashrc or .zshrc file.
