rhino-debugger(1) invokes the rhino JavaScript debugger GUI


rhino-debugger [options] script_filename_or_url [script_arguments]


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

rhino-debugger is a start script for the rhino JavaScript debugger. The Rhino JavaScript debugger is a GUI that allows debugging of interpreted JavaScript scripts run in Rhino. Note that this debugger will not work with JavaScript scripts run in the mozilla browser since Rhino is not the engine used in such environments.
