purpose. So I tried calling the debugger from the command line in the
same way you would call the regular Python debugger
python -m IPython.core.debugger myscript.py

around. I managed to get something that works although it involves
monkey patching the IPython Pdb class into the Python pdb module.

the IPython code what do I do? I looked around on the site and couldn't
find anything solid so I decided to post here.
Additionally keep up the good work. I haven't gotten to play with the
notebooks yet my environment at work is fairly restrictive but I hope to
