[IPython-user] Can I do %ed range:of:lines file_name.py?

Greetings all --

I use %ed 4:6 to open a new file that contains lines 4 through 6.

I use %ed foo.py to open my foo.py file, which most of the time is
blank.

I tried combining the two together like this:

%ed 4:6 foo.py

And foo.py gets interpreted as a number, and so I get a friendly
traceback.

Is it possible to do what I'm trying to do?

Matt
