Store numpy arrays in sqlite

Use numpy.getbuffer (or sqlite3.Binary) in combination with numpy.frombuffer to lug numpy data in and out of the sqlite3 database:
import sqlite3, numpy

r1d = numpy.random.randn(10)

con = sqlite3.connect(':memory:')
con.execute("CREATE TABLE eye(id INTEGER PRIMARY KEY, desc TEXT, data BLOB)")
con.execute("INSERT INTO eye(desc,data) VALUES(?,?)", ("1d", sqlite3.Binary(r1d)))
con.execute("INSERT INTO eye(desc,data) VALUES(?,?)", ("1d", numpy.getbuffer(r1d)))
res = con.execute("SELECT * FROM eye").fetchall()
con.close()

#res ->
#[(1, u'1d', <read-write buffer ptr 0x10371b220, size 80 at 0x10371b1e0>),
# (2, u'1d', <read-write buffer ptr 0x10371b190, size 80 at 0x10371b150>)]

print r1d - numpy.frombuffer(res[0][2])
#->[ 0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.]

print r1d - numpy.frombuffer(res[1][2])
#->[ 0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.]

Note that for work where data types other than float and shapes other than 1d are needed you will also need to keep track of dtype and shape and store those in the database so you can pass them to numpy.frombuffer

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
