Here I believe you also need....

shell2$ cat example.txt &

Yes, I love it. Way more simple than how I was using screen for
basically this thing, but sending code to a running Scheme session,
maybe I can now clean up that script too and simplify stuff. screen is
nice because it can keep session alive, but with this kind of thing I
typically don't want that and would rather have a easy way to reset
everything in the whole system.
