Important Bangla unicode rules

  1. Consonant conjucts are made using hashanta 0x09cd
  2. Hashanta is generated using hashanta + zero width non joiner 0x09cd + 0x200c
  3. The zwnj is only needed if the next letter would form a conjunct. Otherwise, 0x09cd is understood to be a hashanta
  4. All indic scripts use the devnagari danda and double danda 0x0964,0x0965

      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.

      UPDATE:

      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

      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 p.map(mf_wrap, fl)

      Drawing circles using matplotlib

      Use the pylab.Circle command

      import pylab #Imports matplotlib and a host of other useful modules cir1 = pylab.Circle((0,0), radius=0.75, fc='y') #Creates a patch that looks like a circle (fc= face color) cir2 = pylab.Circle((.5,.5), radius=0.25, alpha =.2, fc='b') #Repeat (alpha=.2 means make it very translucent) ax = pylab.axes(aspect=1) #Creates empty axes (aspect=1 means scale things so that circles look like circles) ax.add_patch(cir1) #Grab the current axes, add the patch to it ax.add_patch(cir2) #Repeat pylab.show()
