It is implemented as a
ScriptLanguage plugin for the SciJava
Common platform, which means that
in addition to being usable directly as a
it also provides some functionality on top, such as the ability to generate
lines of script code based on SciJava events.
For a complete list of scripting languages available as part of the SciJava platform, see the Scripting page on the SciJava Common wiki.
Here is an example annotated R script:
# @ScriptService ss # @OUTPUT String name language <- ss$getLanguageByName('R') name <- language$languageName
Known limitations or quirks:
- Variables outside the Global environment scope may not persist after the script runs. If you need to access a variable after running the script, it is safer to use global assignment ("<<-" or "assign()");
- "Bean" properties can be accessed via both the getter (
obj$getName()) or as property (
- Methods of Java objects must be referrenced via the dollar functions (obj$function)
