Using Revolution only in a command line mode?

Hi Glen,

I am working on a command line utility for Revolution. In fact,  
Metacard used to be a fully functional command line utility in  
itself, but this wonderful feature is definitely broken with the new  
file format. Additionally, it is no longer possible to run stacks the  
same way you can do with scripts written in Perl, Python, AppleScript  
and other scripting languages.

The application I am making runs single line scripts from the command  
line, unless you specify a location of a file that may contain up to  
10 lines of script. Later, it will also be possible to add libraries  
with longer scripts. If you like this, contact me off-list and I'll  
send you a demo.
