[SciPy-user] pycrust

Thanks - this is helpful.

I am trying to get ipython to use an editor other than windows notepad.
First I tried editing the 'ipythonrc' file. Didn't have any affect -
still uses notepad. Then I tried a command line:
 ipython -editor C:\Program Files\Crimson Editor\cedt.exe 

It doesn't like that. I think it's something to do with the spaces in
the path. Should I use \%20 ?
Anyone else got this sorted on a win32 system?

As long as you use the TkAgg backend, I was able to use matplotlib and
scipy with pycrust:
import pylab
from scipy import *

The only catch is that once you show() your plots, you have to close
them all before you can do anything else in the command window (because
gui_thread doesn't work).

While pycrust and its variants form a nice environment, the editor
associated with them is pretty plain and the history mechanism isn't
persistant (i.e. it doesn't remember commands after you close it and
restart it).
