[IPython-User] tab completion in notebook gives weird results
Fri Jan 6 14:58:36 CST 2012
I have noticed that the tab completion in certain cases produces quite
unexpected results. If I open a notebook without anything, and try to
load pylab via the magic machinery, then I get the following:
In  : %pyl + TAB -> %pylab
In : pyl + TAB -> pyllab
In : pyla + TAB -> pylaab
In : mag + TAB -> maggic
In : %mag + TAB -> %magic
So, when I drop the % sign, the command is expanded incorrectly. I don't
see this behaviour in the qt frontend, because in that case the command
is not completed at all, only the possible completions are shown.
I was wondering whether it was supposed to be like this (I don't think
so), and whether I should file a bug report.
