can i run the groovysh from inside idea 8.1?

Idea 8.1 #9732 on vista, jdk 1.6, groovy 1.5.6

Can I run the groovysh from within idea and get "smart completion" for
things like methods and so forth?

I like groovysh to try things "at the command line" but I hate having to
look up methods, etc. Having both from within idea 8 would be very
convenient. Please advise. Thanks.

There's no such possibility now. You can get all the completion in a
script editor and then run this script, which is pretty fast.

Fair enough, I just tried it and it's a good alternative. If I run the
script in the debugger, I can also immediately evaluate groovy
expressions, which is 90% of the way there. Thanks.
