Groovy processing

Just something interesting I came across in Dierk Koenig et al.’s excellent Groovy In Action (Manning): Groovy is not like other scripting languages that are processed line-by-line. Groovy code is fully parsed and a class is generated from the information that the parser has built. Groovy classes are identical to Java bytecode when generated.
