New submission from Boštjan Mejak <bostjan.mejak at gmail.com>:
I have found a possible typo in an example code of Python 3.2. It's located on page 32 in the PDF version of the FAQ document. The code is:
count = 0 # number of times C.__init__ called
C.count = C.count + 1
return C.count # or return self.count
The code block of the __init__ method is the thing that has the typo. Shouldn't C.count = C.count + 1 be c.count = C.count + 1 ? Because the text after this code example says:
c.count also refers to C.count for any c such that isinstance(c, C) holds /.../.
How can c.count also refer to C.count if there is no c.count in the present code example in the FAQ of Python 3.2?
If this is a typo, please fix it for Python 3.2 and also for other Python versions with the same typo.
Else if this is not a typo, explain how can c.count refer to C.count if there is no c.count in the code example.
