```Thanks - this is helpful.

I am trying to get ipython to use an editor other than windows notepad.
First I tried editing the 'ipythonrc' file. Didn't have any affect -
still uses notepad. Then I tried a command line:
ipython -editor C:\Program Files\Crimson Editor\cedt.exe

It doesn't like that. I think it's something to do with the spaces in

Anyone else got this sorted on a win32 system?

Thanks

Dave

scipy with pycrust:
import pylab
from scipy import *

y=sin(2*pi*x)
pylab.plot(x,y)
pylab.show()

The only catch is that once you show() your plots, you have to close
them all before you can do anything else in the command window (because
