+ *
+ * Usage:
+ * If your app is a GUI app compiled with -Wl,--subsystem,windows But
+ * you still want to run it from the command line to support console
+ * interaction (input, output), you can compile and install this small
+ * wrapper as a .com file next to your .exe. (.com takes precedence)
+ *
+ * This wrapper will call the .exe with the same arguments, and wait
+ * until it finished. The child process should attach to the same
+ * console and redirect standard input/output, this way:
+ *
+ *   if (AttachConsole(ATTACH_PARENT_PROCESS) != 0) {
+ *       freopen("CONIN$", "r", stdin);
+ *       freopen("CONOUT$", "w", stdout);
+ *       freopen("CONERR$", "w", stderr);
+ *       dup2(fileno(stdin), STDIN_FILENO);
+ *       dup2(fileno(stdout), STDOUT_FILENO);
+ *       dup2(fileno(stderr), STDERR_FILENO);
+ *   }
+
+ * Note: if you have a better solution for hybrid console/windows app,
+ * I would be glad to learn how!
