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)

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
