[IPython-user] IPython Color help on windows cmd shell
Fri Oct 12 15:36:35 CDT 2007
Sorry to hijack/resurrect an old thread, but I have the same problem
and this solution didn't work for me. What all do I need to do to
adequately clean my installation and what files do I need to install?
Fernando mentioned SVN IPython and PyReadline. I tried the IPython
but didn't see an SVN PyReadline in there. Should 1.4.4 work? What
other files should I be using? How do I get more info to help debug
this? I want a pretty screen like Fernando's.
