Description

11 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.0.6) Gecko/20060728 Firefox/1.5.0.6
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.0.6) Gecko/20060728 Firefox/1.5.0.6

The example, though working in Linux, does not work in Windows because of the single quotes:
G:\ws\rhino\examples>ver

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

G:\ws\rhino\examples>java RunScript "Math.cos(Math.PI)"
-1

G:\ws\rhino\examples>java RunScript 'function f(x){return x+1} f(7)'
functionf(x){returnx+1}f(7)

G:\ws\rhino\examples>java RunScript "function f(x){return x+1} f(7)"
8

G:\ws\rhino\examples>ver

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

G:\ws\rhino\examples>java -version
java version "1.5.0_07"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_07-b03)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_07-b03, mixed mode, sharing)

G:\ws\rhino\examples>

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open DOS console in directory of RunScript.class
2. Set CLASSAPTH to rhino class tree and current dir, "e.g. set CLASSPATH=../build/classes;."
3. run: java RunScript 'function f(x){return x+1} f(7)'
4. run: java RunScript "function f(x){return x+1} f(7)"


Actual Results:  
single quotes:
G:\ws\rhino\examples>ver

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

G:\ws\rhino\examples>java RunScript "Math.cos(Math.PI)"
-1

G:\ws\rhino\examples>java RunScript 'function f(x){return x+1} f(7)'
functionf(x){returnx+1}f(7)

G:\ws\rhino\examples>single quotes:
G:\ws\rhino\examples>ver

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

G:\ws\rhino\examples>java RunScript "Math.cos(Math.PI)"
-1

G:\ws\rhino\examples>java RunScript 'function f(x){return x+1} f(7)'
functionf(x){returnx+1}f(7)

G:\ws\rhino\examples>java RunScript "function f(x){return x+1} f(7)"
8
8

Expected Results:  
"8" should be output for: java RunScript "function f(x){return x+1} f(7)"

This is a documentation bug, and perhaps an oversight of the author about differences in DOS consoles vs. Linux.

[Sorry for the incorrect component assignment, I tried to find something that would associate this bug with the rhino project, but the online documentation within this bug filing process did not provide me the necessary information.]

The www.mozilla.org site should no longer host documentation.  If there is still a need for this it should be added to MDC.  Moving to Mozilla Developer Center product for discussion.

I've been slowly moving documents over to MDC, but haven't moved this one yet.

I've done some fixes for this. Can someone check it out and see if this is done or if it needs more work?
