ansistego provides terminal-level steganography for scripts and other ASCII files (ie, protection against 'cat'). It intersperses a text/script with commented ANSI codes that cause most terminals to clear sensitive lines as soon as they are written. Only a specified front text appears. The front text is embedded in the script using ANSI-cloaked comments, so that the text appears unaltered when the script is viewed with cat, but the script can be run without any decoding stage.
