       rhino-debugger - 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

       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.
