Should be able to get help on an object mid-command #98
Original Launchpad bug 397227: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ipython/+bug/397227
Currently if you type "zeros?" and press Enter, it will display help on the zeros command.
You should also be able to type things like "a = zeros?" and press Enter, and it will display the help for the zeros command, and then return you to the command you were typing when you exit.

Good idea. It's easier to do in a GUI, where the help can be popped up in a non-obtrusive manner.
But for a terminal, we should look at the %rep code which already puts user input back into a line, and use that same mechanism.
