Also Python has a direct and powerful bridge to Java == Jython

I've never understood why it's taken so long for Java to have command line
interpreter shell...
Is that a wierd design blindspot, or a major development / performance

Meanwhile Python exhibits the dominant trend for interactive progamming.
Where shell interpreters are more conducive for learning by live
And so an excellent model for beginners -- BUT scales right up to the Java
landscape via Jython.

hth + good luck
