[IronPython] Console

Hi Morgan,

Good question. I believe it is actually a bug that we print the "()" on

We didn't turn the console on by default because it is just the first
draft of the console, but it is not yet good enough to turn on by
default, I think. As time permits I hope to improve it and eventually
turn it on by default.

Thanks for your email,

A little detail: why does the console display an empty tuple when you
press enter?

IronPython 0.9.1 on .NET 2.0.50215.44

This does not happen with CPython...

Also, why don't you enable the tab completion feature by default, as I
to find the special switch and create a shortcut to IronPython to enable
it... I'm pretty sure that nobody wants to type everything ;-)

Otherwise, I want to congratulate for the job. I've started porting a
that was relying on IDispatch to use ADO and I could successfully
the code with ADO.Net objects.
