[New-bugs-announce] [issue4737] documentation and noddy*.c

New submission from Kandalintsev Alexandre <bug_hunter at messir.net>:


1) In http://docs.python.org/3.0/extending/extending.html we see:
Note that PyMODINIT_FUNC declares the function as void return type

But thats not true, it's defined as PyObject*. I think this is outdated 
info in documentation.

2) In Doc/includes/noddy*.c assumed that PyMODINIT_FUNC returns nothing 
but this wrong. If you try "python3.1 -c 'import noddy'" you will see 
segfault. This patch will fix this problem:

@@ -52,4 +52,6 @@
     PyModule_AddObject(m, "Noddy", (PyObject *)&noddy_NoddyType);
+    return m;

Other noddy*.c files are also requiring this patch.
