Non-interactive Script Host

mh_script path/to/script.js [args [...]]

You can use mh_script for non-interactive scenario.

But a script written for mh_cli cannot be used by mh_script, because they are using different context scopes.

More specifically, you can use MH class from mh_cli, but you can't use #^mh_(search|result|memory)_# functions from mh_script.

Other mach/dyld related methods are not introduced to MH class, only open()/close(), I'm finding a way to get forked pids, so that forked children can be open in script easily.
