Ticket #35761 (new defect)
py-ipython: readline doesn't work properly
|Reported by:||Deil.Christoph@…||Owned by:||macports-tickets@…|
I am having a problem when using the macports readline in macports ipython: https://github.com/ipython/ipython/issues/2306 contains a simple description of how to reproduce it. (Basically if you do a reverse search with CTRL-R and you'll get garbled text at the ipython input line).
The ipython dev commented it might be a problem with macports readline, but I'm not 100% sure because in macports python, which should use the same readline, I don't see the problem.
I do see the issue also with e.g. python 3.2, where I don't have python modules installed outside of macports, so I think this is not a problem specific to my system.
Can some else confirm the problem?
Any idea what the origin of the problem is? Is this a readline or ipython bug?
