"load" fails when calling scripts from command-line

Reported by Eric Clemmons | January 13th, 2010 @ 05:01 PM | in 1.2.x

Suppose I have a script script.js that consists of:

    print(typeof Envjs);

Calling java -jar env-js/dist/env-js.jar script.js results in:


However, simply running java -jar env-js/dist/env-js.jar and pasting in load('env-js/dist/env.rhino.js'); print(typeof Envjs); results in:


I've poured over the test-prototype.sh file (along with others) and it seems I'm not doing anything different than: java -cp env-js.jar org.mozilla.javascript.tools.envjs.Main test.js

I apologize if this is user error in anyway.

    I had to turn on Optimization:
    java -cp env-js/dist/env-js.jar org.mozilla.javascript.tools.envjs.Main -opt -1 script.js

    I can confirm that adding the -opt -1 flags solves this problem.

    It seems like though if there's some way to not need to add these flags that would be more ideal.

    We are going to build in a env.rhino.js context patch in javascript. It will only apply itself if the parser.js module is included. It's now more a mystery than ever why this occurs and I'll be following up with the rhino team to try to figure it out.

    The bottom line is that we will patch internally so you wont notice.

    This still appears to be happening in the latest on trunk.

    Adding -opt -1 to the java call does works around the problem.

    Using the same script as above:

    print(typeof Envjs);
    $ java -jar env-js/rhino/js.jar script.js
    $ java -jar env-js/rhino/js.jar -opt -1 script.js
