I would like a simple way to configure and run a single script from the command line and see its SAL outputs. This is intended to support development by making it easy to run the script without needing the script queue. I realized the need when writing the ATPtg/ATMCS integration script.
It may be that Tiago Ribeiro's run_queue UI is enough, but I was hoping for something even simpler – something that didn't use the script queue at all.
I initially thought of just expanding BaseScript.main but that is a non-starter because scripts are intentionally not on the $PATH. Instead I think it has to be a standalone script that accepts the name of the script to run. The interface and code can be based on Tiago Ribeiro's run_queue UI.
To make this safe without colliding with a script queue I suggest that it fail if the script queue is alive.
