Yes, but I can't take advantage of all property of IPython. In Ipython help 
documents, I found it in magic run command usage:

-i: run the file in IPython's namespace instead of an empty one. This is useful 
if you are experimenting with code written in a text editor which depends on 
variables defined interactively.

how to understand that?
