Simple Scala console example



Embed a Scala interpreter in your application with scaladon. See li.pika.scaladon.Main for an example of how to use the li.pika.scaladon.Engine.

Configuring The Interpreter

The li.pika.scaladon.Engine allows one to set three settings:

case class Engine(bindings: Bindings = new SimpleBindings(),
                  prompt: Option[String] = None,
                  welcome: Option[String] = None) { ... }

The bindings apply for scripts while the prompt and welcome apply to the interactive interpreter. (At present, scaladon is not able to set bindings for the interactive interpreter.)
