[IPython-User] Invoking ipython shell in the middle of script run and using magic commands
Sun Apr 8 14:03:52 CDT 2012
Basically what I want to do is stop the script during its run and invoke
just like setting from ipdb import set_trace; set_trace().
But also I want to use some magic commands, especially %timeit, in the
shell, so I can
check how a couple of different implementation of a function performs. I
want to do it
in the middle of a script run because there is a lot of overhead and I
don't want to
make another script just for the testing.
I found putting the following into the code pretty much did what I want:
from IPython import embed
as this gives all the variables with their values and also I could use
magic commands as well.
I wonder if there is better way to do this or this is the right way?
