The latest x.y docs are available at docs.python.org/x.y, such as
I was not aware of this undocumented method of the undocumented tkapp class. It is not available on Windows, and the FAQ should say so. From Modules/_tkinter.c:
/* Tcl_CreateFileHandler() changed several times; these macros deal with the messiness. In Tcl 8.0 and later, it is not available on Windows (and on Unix, only because Jack added it back); when available on Windows, it only applies to sockets. */
Current _tkinter only supports 8.4+. The messiness still appears in the asyncio design.
'createfile' does not appear on the pydoc page for tkinter; directly using createfilehandle seems to be the only access.
