Interactive Interpreter

From IronPython Cookbook

Line 2: Line 2:
Both Python and IronPython can be used in interactive interpreter mode. This makes a great calculator, but is also a really good way of trying out language features or experimenting with libraries. You can also perform simple scripting tasks like inspecting files or databases.

To launch the interactive interpreter, run '''ipy.exe''' from the command line.

Individual commands, or blocks of code, can be typed here and are executed immediately.  The results are displayed in the console window.  You can access the last result through the magic variable '_'.
