Wrong version of python: import pylab fails, import numpy gets 1.0.1: Doh! Forgot to set new path

  1. sudo /Applications/MacPython\ 2.5/Update\ Shell\ Profile.command #To set path to new python verion
  2. sudo sh setuptools-0.6c9-py2.5.egg #easy install should know of this
  3. sudo easy_install ipython-0.9.1-py2.5.egg
  4. sudo rm /usr/local/bin/ipython #To make sure
  5. logout and back in to have paths take hold

Python: Multiprocessing: passing multiple arguments to a function

Write a wrapper function to unpack the arguments before calling the real function. Lambda won't work, for some strange un-Pythonic reason.

import multiprocessing as mp def myfun(a,b): print a + b def mf_wrap(args): return myfun(*args) p = mp.Pool(4) fl = [(a,b) for a in range(3) for b in range(2)] #mf_wrap = lambda args: myfun(*args) -> this sucker, though more pythonic and compact, won't work, fl)

Flowing text in inkscape (Poster making)

You can flow text into arbitrary shapes in inkscape. (From a hint here).

You simply create a text box, type your text into it, create a frame with some drawing tool, select both the text box and the frame (click and shift) and then go to text->flow into frame.


The omnipresent anonymous asked:
Trying to enter sentence so that text forms the number three...any ideas?
The solution:
Type '3' using the text toolConvert to path using object->pathSize as necessaryRemove fillUngroupType in actual text in new text boxSelect the text and the '3' pathFlow the text
