[--- Feature request posted on behalf of Balakrishnan Sakthidharan ---]

IDLE lets you run scripts with F5.

What is needs is an F6 that opens a dialog box and asks for command-line arguments.  This will help develop and test command line scripts in the IDE.

  F6 -q5 -v=8 somefile.txt

This PR will add the short-key to F7, when using editor. It will prompt up a dialog and user can input the command-line arguments then run the code.

Another duplicate of #5680, which already has three patches.  I retitled the PR and it is now listed on #5680.
