In the Spring of 2014, I graduated with a B.S. in Computer Engineering and a B.S. in Mathematics. I am trying to get into grad school for neuroscience with an application in Brain-Computer Interfacing. Job experience includes cryptanalysis, malware reverse engineering, and neural nets. I'll edit this as I think of something more interesting to put.

revised How does the Goodman-Kruskal gamma test and the Kendall tau or Spearman rho test compare?
Changed "better" to "higher" to prevent confusion.

comment How does the Goodman-Kruskal gamma test and the Kendall tau or Spearman rho test compare?
That was indirectly the same as my question, @Glen_b; except, I was asking why the algorithms reported higher correlation and what would cause that. I'll change "better" to "higher" so to make my meaning a little more clear. You are right that they measure different things, and that the numbers don't really have too much to do with each other, but I wanted to know what the numbers actually meant, which is answered in detail below.

comment getting sphinx to recognise correct signature
I love this solution (although it's a little bit of a hack), except for the fact that I am mostly using class decorators, so I still am unable to use this. For a temporary solution, I was going to have __init__.py do the wrapping only if SPHINX_BUILD is not set. This seems too convoluted, so I think I'll just deal with manually setting the signature in Sphinx, but it might be an idea someone else would be interested in.

revised Difference in behavior between os.fork and multiprocessing.Process
Changed to address the new question, instead of the original answer...

comment Difference in behavior between os.fork and multiprocessing.Process
There are more issues here than the differences in the libraries. There may be side effects of external_function that we cannot account for, which is the only explanation for the behavior you describe that I know of. Additionally, as both my and Andi's answer say, the differences are that the multiprocessing library wraps os.fork.

It actually doesn't create a copy of the current process in Windows. Otherwise, all the caveats listed here wouldn't be a problem. See my answer for more details.

If Dano's edit is correct, then we cannot answer your question without at least getting the names of the packages.

But his comment is still valid, we cannot reproduce the behavior you are encountering without some input from you.
