[issue10789] Lock.acquire documentation is misleading
report at bugs.python.org
Wed Dec 29 18:41:18 CET 2010
New submission from Jyrki Pulliainen <jyrki at dywypi.org>:
In threading module, the Lock.acquire documentation is misleading. The signature suggests that the blocking can be given as a keyword argument but that would lead to an TypeError, as thread.lock.acquire does not accept keyword arguments.
The signature in documentation should be formatted as in thread.lock.acquire.
