I can't seem to find the functionality I'm looking for w/%magic's
I've got a python file w/a bunch of utility functions in it (nothing
else, no classes, no __main__ check).
I want to be able to use the debugger (%pdb) to run a particular
function in that file. The only way I've found to do that is to add
some line at the bottom that calls the function I'd like to test, and
to then do
%run -d <file> -b<line inside function I'd like to inspect>
I'd much prefer being able to run the function itself, but it doesn't
appear that %run has such an option.
It seems a very common thing to want to do; perhaps I'm missing
As always, advice appreciated.
