I've been working on a little proof of concept idea and wanted to see if other people liked it and perhaps wanted to see it go further. I've heard a couple of calls for command line ColdFusion. I wanted to see if it could be done.

My first experiment was trying to use AIR new native processes to make a command line client for ColdFusion. It didn't pan out. But the api I used to make it was easily adaptable. I combined it with a socket listener event gateway to make a ColdFusion telnet server.
