Create a new rule titled “Terminals” as follows:

Each Program has two states, an Input state and an Output state, which are tracked as text fields in the GNDT. A state consists of two ASCII characters from within the decimal ordinal range 33-126, inclusive, as listed at the following table: https://www.cs.cmu.edu/~pattis/15-1XX/common/handouts/ascii.html

Within the text of the Ruleset and Proposals, any given set of two characters may not refer to or set an Input state or an Output state unless the typeface of those characters is italicized.

If a Program has never had their Input state set, it defaults to the first two characters of their Blognomic player name. If a Program has never had their Output state set, it defaults to the last two characters of their Blognomic player name.

Append the following to “Terminals” if the proposals “Code Monkey” and “Crash Flow” have passed:

If the execution of the Master Control Program would change a Program’s Input or Output state to an illegal value, that state change does not take place, but this alone does is not sufficient to render the Atomic Action of execution illegal.
