Post-Modern Terminal CLI

As is usual; with all things computing, the easy road of bootstrap before security is just an obvious order of things. It then becomes a secondary goal to become the primary input moderation tool such that effective tooling brings benefits while not having to rely on the obscurity of knowledge. For example a nice code signature no execution tool where absolutely no code even becomes partially executed if the security situation indicates otherwise.

A transparent solution is a tool for development which can export a standard script to just run within today’s environment. As that environment evolves within the future it can take on the benefits of the tool, so maybe even to the point of the tool being replaced purely by choice of the user shell, and at a deeper level by a runtime replacing the shell interpreter at the system level.

The basic text edit of a script at some primary point in the development just requires a textual representation, a checksum in the compiled code which is in a different file and a checksum to allow a text override with some security on detecting a change in the text. This then allows possible benefit by a recompile option along with just a temporary use of the textual version. It won’t look that hard in the end with some things just having a security rating of “system local” for a passing observer.
