Hello world

import System
import System.Text
import LibLAS

class Program(object):
       def Main(self, args):
               try:
                       try:
                               lasreader = LASReader()
                               lasheader = lasreader.GetHeader()
                               laswriter = LASWriter()
                               Console.WriteLine('Number of points in file= {0}', lasheader.PointRecordsCount)
                       except LASException, e:
                               Console.WriteLine('\nLASException! Msg: {0}', e.Message)
                       except None:
                               Console.WriteLine('Unknown exception caught')
               finally:
                       Console.WriteLine('Do i need something to do?')
               Console.WriteLine('End of file')
               Console.Read()
