Write to console window from a Windows Forms App

Josh

Iv created a program that has many command-line arguments. I want to
beable to display help information in the console window that the
person typed the command into. I cant do this unless I switch the
project output type to a console application and I dont want to do
that. It wouldnt work the way I want anyways. I just need a way to
display text to the console window that the program was launched from.
