There are many Java scripts available that can assist you with data analysis.   Running a java script is quite easy - they run in a web browser when embedded in a html file.     


This sample Java 'Digital clock' script can be found here  



<title>Javascript Digital Clock - An example of a Timer</title>


<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">var dateform
tid=0;function dodate(){ Date();tid=window.setTimeout("dodate()",speed);}function start(x){f=x
tid=window.setTimeout("dodate()",speed);}function cleartid(){window.clearTimeout(tid);}</script>




<body onload="start(document.dateform) ;">
Digital Clock
<FORM name="dateform" action="post">
<input type="text" name="date" size=30>

node C:\folder\hello.js


Java scripts not embedded in html files are saved with the extension .js.
