This isn't a magma issue per se. I get a similar issue with gp:

def foo(str):
     time gp(str)


comment:2 Changed 10 years ago by was

sage: def foo(s):
....:     time gp(s)
sage: foo('1')
NameError: name 's' is not defined

This might also be relevant:

sage: print preparse("""def foo(str):\n   time gp(str)\n\nprint gp('1')""", do_time=True)
def foo(str):
   __time__=misc.cputime(); __wall__=misc.walltime(); gp(str); print "Time: CPU %.2f s, Wall: %.2f s"%(misc.cputime(__time__), misc.walltime(__wall__))

print gp('1')
sage: def foo(str):
....:        __time__=misc.cputime(); __wall__=misc.walltime(); gp(str); print "Time: CPU %.2f s, Wall: %.2f s"%(misc.cputime(__time__), misc.walltime(__wall__))
sage: foo('1')
Time: CPU 0.00 s, Wall: 0.00 s

The next thing I might do is look into exactly what Python is executing... there is something funny going on with the preparser not preparsing the input as expected...

OK, investigated this for IPython. The issue is that it evaluates the expression gp(s) within the main user namespace, not within the function's internal namespace (where s lives). Off the top of my head, I can't think of a neat way for the time command to get the namespace from inside the function.

  • Status changed from new to needs_review

I fixed this by making the preparse_ipython preparse the time just as it already happens in the notebook.

  • Authors set to Maarten Derickx
  • Reviewers set to Martin Raum
  • Status changed from needs_review to positive_review

That's ok, but let us hope that is gets fixed in IPython soon.

We're looking at a way to make %time evaluate things in the correct scope, but in the current ipython trunk, auto-magics (like "time" without the %) are only used in single-line inputs. So you'd have to do:

def f(x):
    %time gp(x)

I've written some simple code to make this work in IPython, if you want to test my branch here:
