[IPython-user] Tab completion and number of rows/columns displayed
Thu Dec 20 12:37:14 CST 2007
I installed a fresh copy of pyreadline 1.5 and IPython 0.8.2 on a Windows
2000 machine and I don't see the problem.
I then went to my Windows XP2 machine and uninstalled Ipython and pyreadline
and then reinstalled fresh copies and I DO see the problem. So I'm not sure
if it is OS dependent or something else.
