I'm a happy user of IPython but I often wish I had a feature found in
Mathematica. Where the ? command can take wildcards and then produce a
list of all names matching the wildcard. There is also support for
matching down in packages.
example when using pylab:
['plot', 'plot_date', 'plotting']
It would also be nice to be able to filer on types of objects like:
I have appended a first shot at an implementation of this feature. It
should work by starting ipython and then importing wildcard.
The functionality is installed as a magic function named %listdef. This
seemed like the easiest way to test it.
Is this something more people would find useful added to the ? function?
