RHINO-JSC(1) General Commands Manual RHINO-JSC(1)

NAME

rhino-jsc – invokes the rhino JavaScript compiler

SYNOPSIS

rhino-jsc [options] file1.js [file2.js…]

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the rhino-jsc command. This manual
page was written for the Debian distribution because the original pro‐
gram does not have a manual page. It is written according to the html
documentation.

rhino-jsc is a start script for the rhino JavaScript compiler. The
JavaScript compiler translates JavaScript source into Java class files.
The resulting Java class files can then be loaded and executed at
another time, providing a convenient method for transferring
JavaScript, and for avoiding translation cost. Note that the top-level
functions available to the shell (such as print) are not available to
compiled scripts when they are run outside the shell.

OPTIONS

-extends java_class_name
Specifies that a java class extending the Java class
java_class_name should be generated from the incoming JavaScript
source file. Each global function in the source file is made a
method of the generated class, overriding any methods in the
base class by the same name.

-implements java_intf_name
Specifies that a java class implementing the Java interface
java_intf_name should be generated from the incoming JavaScript
source file. Each global function in the source file is made a
method of the generated class, implementing any methods in the
interface by the same name.

-debug, -g
Specifies that debug information should be generated. May not be
combined with optimization at an optLevel greater than zero.

-nosource
Does not save the source in the class file. Functions and
scripts compiled this way cannot be decompiled. This option can
be used to avoid distributing source or simply to save space in
the resulting class file.

-o outputFile
Writes the class file to the given file (which should end in
.class). The string outputFile must be a writable filename.

-opt, -O optLevel
Optimizes at level optLevel, which must be an integer between 0
and 9.

-package packageName
Specifies the package to generate the class into. The string
packageName must be composed of valid identifier characters
optionally separated by periods.

-version versionNumber
Specifies the language version to compile with. The string ver‐
sionNumber must be one of 100, 110, 120, 130, or 140. See
JavaScript Language Versions for more information on language
versions.

EXAMPLE
Example compiling the NervousText.js applet written in JavaScript. The
example is provided in the librhino-java-doc package.

$ rhino-jsc -extends java.applet.Applet -implements java.lang.Runnable
NervousText.js
