Command-line user interface of igraph
The command-line interface launches a Python shell with the igraph module automatically imported into the main namespace. This is mostly a convenience module and it is used only by the igraph command line script which executes a suitable Python shell and automatically imports igraph's classes and functions in the top-level namespace.
Supported Python shells are:
- IDLE shell (class
- IPython shell (class
- Classic Python shell (class
The shells are tried in the above mentioned preference order one by one, unless the global.shells configuration key is set which overrides the default order. IDLE shell is only tried in Windows unless explicitly stated by global.shells, since Linux and Mac OS X users are likely to invoke igraph from the command line.
