So I have an ipython notebook that has a lot of large variables, and at one point I want to get rid of all the ones I'm done with. I'm using %reset_selective variablename to clear each one, but there's 60 of these variables and when I run the block that has all 60 prompts, it asks me to enter y/n for every clear.
"Once deleted, variables cannot be recovered. Proceed (y/[n])?"
Is there a way I can answer "y" for all of them at once, or to skip the prompt altogether?
Reading from here:
%reset_selective [-f] regex
No action is taken if regex is not included
Options -f : force reset without asking for confirmation.
Seems you're able to pass
-f flag to
%reset_selective to have it force without asking.
