       bsh - BeanShell: A Java scripting environment (command-line version).


       bsh [-classpath path] [file]


       BeanShell  is  a small, embeddable, Java source interpreter with object
       scripting  language  features,  written  in  Java.  BeanShell  executes
       standard  Java  statements  and  expressions,  in  addition  to obvious
       scripting commands and syntax. You can also script  objects  as  simple
       method closures like those in Perl and JavaScript(tm).

       bsh starts the command-line version of BeanShell.


       The  program  bsh  optionally  takes a -classpath option which sets the
       value of the CLASSPATH  environment  variable  to  the  specified  path
       before  starting  the  BeanShell.   This  option is mainly provided for
       compatibility with JDE (Java Development Environment for Emacs).

       In addition, a file to be executed may be given as argument to bsh.


       xbsh - the windowed version of BeanShell.

       More documentation on BeanShell can be found in /usr/share/doc/bsh-doc/
       if the bsh-doc package is installed.
