[New-bugs-announce] [issue1220] popen3 website documentation inconsistency

Justin Bronn report at bugs.python.org
Sun Sep 30 05:27:54 CEST 2007

New submission from Justin Bronn:

The Python website says that the following tuple is returned from
popen3: "Returns the file objects (child_stdout, child_stdin,
child_stderr)."  See http://docs.python.org/lib/module-popen2.html.

However, the docstring of popen3 gets the order right (using Python 2.5.1):
"The file objects (child_stdin, child_stdout, child_stderr) are
returned." See `help(os.popen3)`.
