Release     : 2.fc16

Summary     : An enhanced interactive Python shell
Description :

IPython provides a replacement for the interactive Python interpreter with
extra functionality.

Main features:
 * Comprehensive object introspection.
 * Input history, persistent across sessions.
 * Caching of output results during a session with automatically generated
 * Readline based name completion.
 * Extensible system of 'magic' commands for controlling the environment and
   performing many tasks related either to IPython or the operating system.
 * Configuration system with easy switching between different setups (simpler
   than changing $PYTHONSTARTUP environment variables every time).
 * Session logging and reloading.
 * Extensible syntax processing for special purpose situations.
 * Access to the system shell with user-extensible alias system.
 * Easily embeddable in other Python programs.
 * Integrated access to the pdb debugger and the Python profiler.
