I often write command line programs that take arguments in eclipse. It is cumbersome to repeatedly open the run configurations and change the arguments or switch to a terminal to supply different ones. My proposal is this: have a small panel with just a text field. When the program is run the contents of this text field are used as arguments, and should provide the same functionality as if the contents were appended to
$ java MyProgram 
in a terminal. If possible it would be nice to place it next to the run button, similar to the "quick access" search bar. Another option is to integrate it into the console panel.

Edit:
I've realized this might apply to most, if not all, languages eclipse can be used for. Would it be a good idea to move/repost this in the eclipse core UI forum?
