Hi list,

I usually work in ipython notebook with inline images, but sometimes, I 
connect to existing ipython kernel via terminal. Mainly, I use it for 
checking variables and for commands with a lot of printing output. But I 
also want to use matplotlib from terminal. Is it possible to enable 
matplotlib figures temporary from from terminal? Often, I need to check 
about a hundred of plots visually, and it is not convenient to plot the 
all inside of a notebook window. I would prefer to draw them in external 
figure using for cycle with pause.

Any hints?
Thank you,
