[Matplotlib-users] Interaction of matplotlib with ipython (not notebook)

Hi Neal, I also use ipython from emacs, but the experience is highly
dependent on configuration. I am not sure I am understanding your question:

Are you talking about plt.ion(), plt.ioff() ?

plt.ion() is for interactive use
plt.ioff() for non-interactive. I use it to save the figures without
showing in the screen
