Am I going crazy, or is the syntax to use curly brackets with shell commands to pass python variables not documented at all?
I found a discussion on a blog post but I don't see any mention in IPython's documentation
i mean this syntax:
In [12]: test.something = '-a'
In [13]: !ls {test.something}
the $ syntax is documented, but not the curly bracket one
afaics
i'm happy to open an issue about it but i just want to make sure i'm not missing something :)
