This documentation covers a development version of IPython. The development version may differ significantly from the latest stable release.


This documentation covers IPython versions 6.0 and higher. Beginning with version 6.0, IPython stopped supporting compatibility with Python versions lower than 3.3 including all versions of Python 2.7.

If you are looking for an IPython version compatible with Python 2.7, please use the IPython 5.x LTS release and refer to its documentation (LTS is the long term support release).

Module: core.payloadpage

A payload based version of page.

2 Functions

IPython.core.payloadpage.page(strng, start=0, screen_lines=0, pager_cmd=None)

Print a string, piping through a pager.

This version ignores the screen_lines and pager_cmd arguments and uses IPython’s payload system instead.

  • strng (str or mime-dict) – Text to page, or a mime-type keyed dict of already formatted data.

  • start (int) – Starting line at which to place the display.


DEPRECATED, use show_in_pager hook

Install this version of page as IPython.core.page.page.
