[IPython-user] tab complete questions
Tue Mar 9 20:56:44 CST 2010
I am confused by the tab completion in ipython.
First, I am running OSX 10.5 on intell, python 2.6, ipython 0.10, and
I have corrected the "readline" problem.
OK first, I have added "mypath" to sys.path. When I import a module
which lives in "mypath/bin", everything works. But, when I do
In [XX]: run my_script.py
it fails :(
ERROR: File `my_script.py` not found.
However, if I do
In [XX+1]: run mypath/bin/my_script.py
then it works. Why can't it find the file?
A probably related problem: my_script.py process data files I have.
If I have data1.dat in the directory I am in, then
In [XX]: run mypath/bin/my_script.py da [tab complete]
works and finds the file. However, if the data1.dat files in in a
subdirectory, say mydir/data1.dat, then the tab complete no longer
In [XX]: run mypath/bin/my_script.py mydir/dat [tab complete]
eh, eh, eh (the sound of my mac telling me "don't know what you want
me to do")
So, is this how it works in ipython? Do I have some goofy setup I am
unaware of? Anyone else have this issue?
