ipython && tmux - saving history to a file

Hey,

I had an ipython console open inside a tmux split window and I needed to save the history to a file.
Since I can't copy & paste the data from the screen (I was in the middle of a session, so the next time I would configure it correctly using this).

So I found a quicker way, Roberto Z wrote in his comment that in order to save the session's history you can use readline package:

import readline
readline.write_history_file('/home/user/current_history')

This works like a charm in Ubuntu.
