I just installed ipython http://www-hep.colorado.edu/~fperez/ipython/.
Wow, what a fantastic python shell.
So far I have just two items on my wishlist:
1) Is it possible to bind the 'up/down' arrow keys to the same
function that C-n/C-p are. The latter only bring up previous
commands that match what has been typed before, while the former
bring up the previous/next command regardless of the text entered
so far on the prompt.
2) Is it possible to run ipython in an emacs shell, or is this in the
works (ala matlab-shell)? I fear the answer is no, since the
default editor for the @edit command is vi, which leads me to guess
that Fernando is a vi user. This is not a big requirement, since I
can just pop open a quick emacs session from within ipython with
@edit, but we emacs junkies like to do everything within one emacs
session, for cutting and pasting text across buffers that are
already open, etc...
Thanks for any suggestions!
