This script worked like a charm on my os x 10.9...
Thanks for sharing

A wee FYI; this line is almost certainly correct for this installation procedure

cp -r `opam config var share`/iocaml/profile/* ~/.ipython/profile_iocaml

However, if you play with different versions of IPython the profile directory can mysteriously move! This should always work

cp -r `opam config var share`/iocaml/profile/* `ipython locate profile iocaml`

Copy link

I'm giving this a try, but the directory (opam config var share)/iocaml/ is empty (there is no `profile sub directory).
