[IPython-dev] [Pythonmac-SIG] readline support for OS X Leopard
Mon Oct 29 16:44:22 CDT 2007
FWIW, this patch works for me. I'm on IPython 0.8.2.svn.r2841.
This was driving me nuts for some time -- after all, the _Ruby_ shell
(irb) had tab-completion in Leopard, so why shouldn't Python/
iPython? I hadn't found the time to figure out a solution, so hooray
for user communities. I say commit the change.
Thanks -- you guys made my day!
