[IPython-user] How can an embedded ipython session communicate with the caller?
Sun Mar 22 19:36:59 CDT 2009
I'm writing a program that launches an IPython session to allow the user
to work on some database objects.
I need to keep track of whether any objects were altered so that I can
prompt the user to commit or rollback the changes at the end of the
This is what I tried:
from IPYthon.Shell import IPShellEmbed
tampered = False
s = IPShellEmbed()
s() # Then inside my ipython sesson, I set tampered to True.
print("tampered is %s" % tampered)
It looks like when I assign a value to tampered, I'm only masking the
global with a local. So after the IPython session ends, tampered is
still set to False.
So, how do I do this?
