[IronPython] Executing a python source from C#

That will generate a SyntaxError just as if you passed a partial block to exec.  If you're interested in experimenting with embeddable consoles, you should take a look at the code for IronPythonConsole which also uses PythonEngine to do its loops.

Ultimately, I think that IronPython should ship with a standard interactive console for both winforms and avalon that have a few customization hooks but are designed to be easily plugged into your apps.  I'm still not sure if this embeddable console should be written in C# or in IronPython itself and am curious to hear the results of experiments using either approach.  I'm leaning towards the idea of building it, and even the standard command-line console, in IronPython.

Thanks - Jim

What happens if we send in a partial block, as might happen when creating an embeddable console?
string stmt = "for i in range(6):";
Or is it expected that we ensure that such things don't happen?
