[IPython-dev] ipython bash interaction?
Wed Sep 25 10:44:55 CDT 2013
I have a trivial question: how does the ipython console interact with
bash (or the operating system, for that matter)? I can use system
commands with e.g.,
In  : !date
Wed Sep 25 17:42:33 CEST 2013
but this fails:
In  : !myscript
/bin/sh: 1: myscript: not found
where myscript is a bash script in a directory that is in the path. From
the system console, I can run myscript without any problems, no matter
where I am. Is it not the case that everything after an ! is passed to
the underlying system? Or is there something that has to be configured?
