    Then start playing with reflection API - I suggest having Quotes opened in your IDE, and documentation in your browser. Use showRaw to print expressions you constructed - it will help you understand how to build from ground up when you cannot build something using only expressions.

    A more limited way to do runtime evaluation is via the jsr-223 support: https://github.com/lampepfl/dotty/blob/main/tests/run-with-compiler/scripting.scala, you can't reflect on types that way but the advantage is that you don't end up depending on compiler-internals APIs that could change in any patch release.

    https://github.com/lampepfl/dotty/issues/14262 points to https://github.com/invesdwin/invesdwin-context/blob/master/invesdwin-context-parent/invesdwin-context-scala/src/main/java/de/invesdwin/context/scala/pool/WrappedScalaScriptEngine.java which seems to be doing some caching via https://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/api/javax/script/Compilable.html, but I have zero experience with this stuff.

    Note though that our jsr-223 support is currently a bit limited compared to the scala 2 version: https://github.com/lampepfl/dotty/issues/14262

    If you could open an issue at https://github.com/lampepfl/dotty/issues detailing your problems with the bash shell on Windows that would be useful (it's likely our scripts have only been tested with the cmd.exe shell).
