[IPython-user] Running ipython from shell with pylab

Hello,

I would like write a simple script which will be called from a Bash shell,
and initiate an IPython matplotlib enabled session, and will run an external
file as is supplied in command argument within the same session.

A simple demonstration:

1- plot m.py
2- start an Ipython with pylab
3- run the m.py script
4- show figure(s)
5- maintain namespace and stay inside the Ipython

I have written a few lines which doesn't work the way I want it to be as
given below:

#!/usr/bin/env python

from sys import argv
argv.insert(2,'--pylab')
import IPython
ipython = IPython.Shell.start()
ip = IPython.ipapi.get()
ip.IP.magic_run(argv[1])
ipython.mainloop()

for some reason the external file isn't run :(

Could you please help me on this issue?

Thank you

Gökhan
