Groovy Goodness: Using Groovy on the Command-Line

We can use Groovy on the command-line to evaluate one-line scripts and pipe output to other commands or use input from other commands. This makes for some command-line scripting. We invoke groovy with the -e argument to evaluate a simple script. We can even use arguments in the script.

One of the other things I'm loving about getting into Groovy and Grails is the ability to use Groovy for command-line scripting. Some really powerful stuff can be accomplished very simply with Groovy.
