Hi Alexander,

Thanks for the reply.

You'll be happy to know I've gotten to the bottom of at least half of
the problem, and I think what I figured out may benefit others as well.
The commands py-execute-* now process the buffers fully, and don't
require the queues to be manually cleared. (The prompt colorization is
still not working, however.)

  > py-comint-output-filter-function (in python.el) might be a good start.

I took your advice and and went looking in this file. (It's actually
called python-mode.el.) Under closer inspection, I couldn't find
anything in it referring to ipython at all, and I could see hard-coded
strings that clearly matched the ordinary python prompt.

I double checked that the file was shadowing the generic python-mode.el
-- fine. I double checked that I was using the python-mode.el that is
distributed with ipython-emacs-0.3.tgz -- fine. Then I double-checked
that this was the same as the version you had sent me in an earlier
email -- bingo!

It seems that the ipython-emacs-0.3.tgz distributed on the website (at
least, at http://ipython.scipy.org/dist/ ), has the a generic
python-mode.el rather than the one modified to work with ipython. At
least, when I swapped in your python-mode.el it started working with a

I'm a little embarassed it was a simple as this, since I thought I'd
already checked with the files you sent me. I think I had checked -- but
only for the colorization problem.

I'm going to tackle the font colorization a bit later. I thought you'd
want to know in case the version on the ftp server should be updated.

thanks again,
