[IPython-user] ipython and optparse

hello,
I use optparse to parse command line args and it works fine with my 
python 2.4 install. I also have ipython built on top of it, and it works 
fine as well, but it seems to be a feature of ipython that *all* args 
are passed to it instead of some being passed to the python script for 
processing by optparse....
So

python -i AngDistSampler.py -k 62.5 --draw

works, but

ipython2.4 -i AngDistSampler.py -k 62.5 --draw

does not : ipython complaining that -k is not a known option.....

thanks for any further information

Johann
