[New-bugs-announce] [issue1152] Bug in documentation for SimpleXMLRPCServer

New submission from Frank Millman:

I spotted a minor bug in the documentation to SimpleXMLRPCServer.

    xmlrpclib.py has the following - 

    # This class is available as ServerProxy and Server.  New code 
    # use ServerProxy, to avoid confusion. 
    class ServerProxy: 
    Server = ServerProxy 

The bug: 
    Section 18.25.1 SimpleXMLRPCServer Objects 
    The following client code will call the methods made available by 
the preceding server: 
    import xmlrpclib 
    s = xmlrpclib.Server('http://localhost:8000') 

It should say: 
    s = xmlrpclib.ServerProxy('http://localhost:8000')
