I ran an Anaconda Python installation from iTerm using
python -i myscript.py. It made a plot using Matplotlib. After I closed the plot, the two icons remain.
Each has a dot under it, and a little arrow on the bottom left corner.
When I type
exit()at the python prompt the Python icon disappears and the iTerm icon remains unchanged.
When I close iTerm the dot disappears, but the arrow remains.
Exactly what do these indicate? What is it exactly that these dots and arrows are trying to tell me?
