Was hoping someone here may have experienced this too. I often use ipython for a local python shell and everything works fine. But sometime I like to use pdb and the default python shell. I'm using mac terminal but I am unable to space. If anyone has encountered this and knows whats up, or can point me in the right direction I'd appreciate any help!


Found the answer with some help from some coworkers.

In my $HOME/.inputrc I had Space: magic-space set

So I changed it to:

$if Bash
    Space: magic-space

Hope this helps some weary soul in the future.
