[New-bugs-announce] [issue9024] PyDateTime_IMPORT macro incorrectly marked up
report at bugs.python.org
Fri Jun 18 10:48:49 CEST 2010
New submission from Tim Golden <mail at timgolden.me.uk>:
The reference to PyDateTime_IMPORT in the C API datetime docs is marked
up as cfunction, giving it a pair of brackets which render it invalid.
There is also no indication of where in the code it should be invoked.
