"""Extract a session from the IPython input history.
Usage: sessionnumber [outputfile]
If outputfile is not given, the relevant history is written to stdout. If
outputfile has a .py extension, the translated history (without IPython's
special syntax) will be extracted.
./ 57 record.ipy
This script is a simple demonstration of HistoryAccessor. It should be possible
to build much more flexible and powerful tools to browse and pull from the
history database.
import sys
from IPython.core.history import HistoryAccessor
session_number = int(sys.argv[1])
if len(sys.argv) > 2:
dest = open(sys.argv[2], "w")
raw = not sys.argv[2].endswith('.py')
dest = sys.stdout
raw = True
dest.write("# coding: utf-8\n")
# Profiles other than 'default' can be specified here with a profile= argument:
hist = HistoryAccessor()
for session, lineno, cell in hist.get_range(session=session_number, raw=raw):
cell = cell.encode('utf-8') # This line is only needed on Python 2.
dest.write(cell + '\n')
