In the Spring of 2014, I will graduate 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.

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.

Please, if anyone else has the same question as the user above, this answer doesn't provide anything but another link to go down. If you could put the relevant information in your answer, as the community guidelines request you do, I will remove my downvote.

Added a little extra about Unix multiprocessing and a link to an answer that bears the same information.

comment How can one make border of text for a figure?
Whoop. Yes, not the figure environment. You're right, that is silly. I have a well formatted page worth of text and the like that I would like to surround with that. I misunderstood and thought the format you had required a picture, until I looked again. This indeed is exactly what I'm looking for.
