I prefer this approach. I think it is more compatible with the
The Kawa compiler can take this kind of script, and if you compile
it with --main you get a stand-alone Java application. If you load
it, you get the behavior expected of the script. I don't think the
rationale for easier debugging is strong enough to compensate for
a clumsier and less traditional interface.
I think "script-arguments" is not a good name. What is a "script"?
Why the word "script" as apposed to "program" or "application"?
"command-line-arguments" is both more descriptive and avoids the
"script" vs "program" issue. It is so descriptive that both Scsh
and Kawa use it - but they use it for a global variable. Using it
for a function would clash. Scsh does have "(command-line)" which
returns the complete command line, including the name the script
was executed as.
