[IronPython] Making A Windows Form App

The command line tool that comes with IronPython runs in the standard
Windows console.
You can set up the console to allow copy'n' paste. To do that:

left click on the icon on the upper-left corner of the console window
select "Defaults"
Check "Quick edit mode"
Restart the IronPython.

Then you can use mouse to select area on the console. Right click (or
Enter) will copy to clipboard
and another right click of the mouse will insert the text as a console
input. I find this very useful
when using the IronPython console.
