When starting an R process using ESS (
M-x R) you are interactively asked for a working directory.
To replicate this behaviour for python I have been opening up some random file in the directory I want to start python and then calling
run-python, which is not as convenient. My question is - is there a way to replicate the R behaviour? That is, call
my-run-python (or whatever) which prompts for a directory and then starts python there?
