I Need a Couple of Tips for Windows to Get Started on IPython

Good. Thanks. Interesting that ls and pwd are used for Win, but that's fine. How do I copy parts of the window? All I can do at the moment is sweep out a rectangular area with the mouse. It looks like I underestimated the need for automagic.

Depends on whether "automagic" is enabled or not. If automagic is OFF, you need to enter the %, as in %cd. If automagic is ON (the default), then you don't need to enter the %, as in cd.

automagic can be toggled on and off as follows:

In [8]: automagic

Automagic is OFF, % prefix IS needed for magic functions.

In [9]: %automagic

Automagic is ON, % prefix NOT needed for magic functions.

On my mac, I can change to my "home" directory as follows:

In [10]: cd
/Users/darnold

I can list the files in this directory with:

In [11]: ls
Desktop/ Movies/ context/
Documents/ Music/ java.log.344
Downloads/ NetBeansProjects/ java.log.415
Dropbox/ Pictures/ luatex-cache/
Library/ Public/ matlab_crash_dump.344
LizThesis/ Sites/ matlab_crash_dump.415

I can cd into my Sites folder with:

In [12]: cd Sites
/Users/darnold/Sites

I can get the current directory with:

In [13]: pwd
Out[13]: '/Users/darnold/Sites'

I can move up a directory level with:

In [14]: cd ..
/Users/darnold

Hope this helps.

If I want to execute a program with %run, I need to be where abc.py is

Dir doesn't work and I haven't been able to even see what's in the folder.

In Windows I recommend running iPython inside Console <http://sourceforge.net/projects/console/>
particularly for its vastly improved copy and pasting.

OK, here I go. Quick Edit is checked, and I'm running from what looks like the Win XP command console. I am not in full screen mode. I've applied changes to the window. It has scroll bars side and bottom. I've moused the area, and now am going to Edit on the window menu. It works! I just pasted it into a txt file. Thanks. Pretty convoluted, but it works.

Is it possible to paste from outside? For example copy and paste from a txt file.

I thought the console was the only way to use IPython. I go to Start->Allprograms->IPython, and select IPython. Oh, I see *Console" is something of a replacement for the Win Cmd Console. Is there some site that shows off it's features?

In Windows I recommend running iPython inside Console <http://sourceforge.net/projects/console/>
particularly for its vastly improved copy and pasting.

Note that right-clicking is going to execute behavior, not bring up a contextual menu.

Right-click does nothing on the IPython window.

The Windows command console is, I think, a lost cause all together. I've
tried a right-click on it with the same result as in IPython.
I'm using Win XP, and I hope they improve on Win 7, which I plan to
install on all my machines this month.

Not that I know of.

By the way, in case you haven't set it up a shortcut to Console that starts up IPython, I did it like this:

I created a shortcut to console in my start menu:

Properties>Shortcut
Target: "C:\Program Files\Console2\Console.exe"
Start in: "C:\Program Files\Console2"

Then in Console, under Edit|Settings|Tabs

Create a tab with
Main>Title & icon|Title: iPython
Shell>Shell: C:\PYTHON25\Scripts\ipython.exe -pylab -wthread -p pylab
Shell>Startup dir: C:\Python25
