[IPython-dev] An idea: unique synthetic filenames
Mon Sep 22 16:23:35 CDT 2008
Currently, for each In, we compile the input to a code object with a fake
filename like "<string>" or "<ipython console>". If we were to generate a unique
fake filename for each input, say "<ipython console 10>" to correspond with
In, we could then stuff the text into linecache. This will be used in
tracebacks and other similar tools (like my line_profiler).
Worth a shot?

that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had
an underlying truth."
