The ?moral equivalent of print()?* in IPython is display(), which is
documented here:
https://ipython.readthedocs.io/en/stable/api/generated/IPython.display.html#IPython.display.display

It checks a list of special methods, which are listed in those docs.

Note that these days display() is available by default in all IPython
(notebook or non-notebook) sessions; in the past it had to be imported.

On a different note somewhat related to your original question: If you
want more control over how a DataFrame is displayed, you can have it:
https://pandas.pydata.org/pandas-docs/stable/style.html
