I am trying to understand exactly what the -pylab option does when I launch ipython -pylab - thought some folks here might know.
For example, after executing
I can type either
a = np.array([1.,10.])
b = array([1.,10.])
are these both numpy arrays? And clearly, there has been an "import numpy as np" from the -pylab option.
Also, how is scipy imported? Just "form scipy import *" or something similar to numpy?
I haven't been able to find this info online or in documents yet.
