Hi All,

I'm on a Mac, running ipython 0.12.1 as shipped in the latest EPD release.

This works:

In [2]: !head -n 10 names/yob1880.txt
Mary,F,7065
Anna,F,2604
Emma,F,2003
Elizabeth,F,1939
Minnie,F,1746
Margaret,F,1578
Ida,F,1472
Alice,F,1414
Bertha,F,1320
Sarah,F,1288

However, if I do the same thing in the qtconsole:

!head -n 10 names/yob1880.txt











In [3]:

Any idea what's going on and how I can fix it?

cheers,

Chris
