"jrunscript" - Run JavaScript Interactively

This section provides a tutorial example on how to use 'jrunscript' to run JavaScript code interactively.

As the first test, I want to use "jrunscript" to run some simple JavaScript script lines interactively:

herong> jrunscript
Warning: Nashorn engine is planned to be removed from a future JDK release

nashorn> Math.PI*0.5*0.5;

nashorn> println("Hello World!");
Hello World!

nashorn> x = "Apple", y = "Orange";

nashorn> print(x);

nashorn> exit();

To find out what script engines are supported in my OpenJDK package, I used the "jrunscript -q" command.

herong$ java -version
openjdk version "11.0.7" 2020-04-14 LTS
OpenJDK Runtime Environment 18.9 (build 11.0.7+10-LTS)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM 18.9 (build 11.0.7+10-LTS, mixed mode, sharing)

herong$ jrunscript -q
Language ECMAScript ECMA - 262 Edition 5.1 implementation \
   "Oracle Nashorn" 11.0.7

Cool. "jrunscript" is easy to use. And the OpenJDK 11 only supports Nashorn 11 engine for JavaScript.
