    bash should take commands from the standard input stream, whatever this
    is and independent of the ways you assign it.

    "bash 0 interpreter like bash or the "init" program. But any other software can
    fork and start a bash session while assigning (e.g. /dev/tty0 or a file)
    to its stdin stream.
