[IPython-User] %edit in qtconsole vs ipython
Tue Aug 2 13:18:43 CDT 2011
My preference is for the run on exit option, however, I would be very
helpful if the subsequently edited file was injected into the history as
%loadpy does. For example, doing something like:
In: %edit _i3
allows you to edit the previous input, but this does not save the
changes in the history, which is a major limitation. My vote is to
allow, on editor exit, for an automatic %loadpy, or at least a
configuration option that allows this.
Just my opinion.
