[docs] [issue29175] Documentation for File objects missing

Jonathan Roach report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Jonathan Roach:

The file documentation (as seen in python.org) went missing in 3.3. In 2.7.13 it can be found in 'The Python Standard Library' as section '5.9 File Objects', between '5.8 Mapping Types' and '5.10 memory view type'. In 3.3 and onwards this section is no longer present, and, as far as I can tell, is not present elsewhere in the documentation.
[related: in 'The Python Tutorial' section '7.2.1 Methods of File Objects' the inline references to the file object methods are shown as references, but without a target]
