[IronPython] Bug when calling ironpythonconsole from powershell

This actually sounds more like a PowerShell bug than an IronPython bug (it's splitting a command line option or maybe : is a special character in PowerShell?).

I don't currently have PowerShell installed, but does \: instead of : work (it's just a crazy guess that maybe it needs to be escaped).

Subject: [IronPython] Bug when calling ironpythonconsole from powershell


I have a problem calling ironpythonconsole from windows powershell using the -X: options. Below are excerpts from sessions both in cmd.exe and

 From cmd.exe:
C:\IronPython>IronPythonConsole.exe -X:SaveAssemblies hej.py HELLO WORLD!

 From windows powershell:
PS C:\IronPython> IronPythonConsole.exe -X:SaveAssemblies hej.py File -X: does not exist

looks like there is some issue with commandline parsing.

Best regards,
