Alternative js interpreter rhino does not support readline().

The spidermonkey-bin package is available from this ppa:


And appears to work fine. Not really a fix but a decent workaround.

I was getting around to make a version that uses narwhal or node, since nowadays I'm more likely to have one of those around than spidermonkey. Let me know if anybody's interested and I can find some time.

I had no trouble getting spidermonkey-bin. It's in lucid-universe.

The latest development version of jslint.vim supports rhino and node.js in addition to spidermonkey. I do not recommend using rhino though: it has to start up a JVM instance every time jslint runs which creates a lengthy delay, and the latest version of jslint.vim checks for errors in near real time so jslint gets run frequently.
