[docs] [issue17418] Documentation Bug

Gurmeet Singh report at bugs.python.org
Thu Mar 14 16:02:41 CET 2013

New submission from Gurmeet Singh:

Incompletely explained documentation at 2 places:

1. http://docs.python.org/3/library/functions.html#open

The buffering argument is not correctly explained when setting to a positive argument in binary mode.

2. http://docs.python.org/3/library/os.html#os.open

It is not very clear where to find descriptions of the arguments of this function. Where to find the required information and where to find C run-time documentation could be explained in following preferably:
(Python/C API Reference Manual) http://docs.python.org/3/c-api/index.html and / or 
(The Python Standard Library) http://docs.python.org/3/library and  / or 
(Python Runtime Services) http://docs.python.org/3/library/python.html 

A hyperlink may be added if so felt.
