iPython's %doctest_mode Tue, Dec 22, 2009

This is one of those OMG why didn’t I know this before moments. Been developing python for how many years?

Was slapping some doctests into an ancient library written years ago and searched for… I don’t even remember. But ran across this little gem about %doctest_mode in iPython

Outrageously cool. Game changing. Life altering. Okay, at least outrageously cool.

For my couple of friends writing in python it’s totally worth checking out.

Newer and older stuff..
