Try this...

If you don't already have it, download and install ctypes from


Then download and unzip my pure python readline from


In the resulting folder at a command prompt, type

python setup.py install

When you restart ipython (or python) for that matter. You should have a 
readline that works pretty much exactly like the gnu-readline with 
completion, history, etc.
