    Description

      Use JLine functionality to detect pastes, then process them as one block.

      E.g.:


      "Hello".toUpperCase()
             .length();

      jshell will process the first line as a snippet (as semi-colons are optional) so we were mulling over whether there would be any way to make it easy to paste in multi-line code examples like this.

      (Thanks Matthew and Alan))
