[New-bugs-announce] [issue2752] Wrong comment in socket documentation

Giampaolo Rodola' report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Giampaolo Rodola' <billiejoex at users.sourceforge.net>:

In the example section of socket module I see:

HOST = ''                 # Symbolic name meaning the local host
PORT = 50007              # Arbitrary non-privileged port

'', at least on Windows, is an alias for telling the socket to listen on
all available interfaces while 'localhost' is used for referencing the
local interface (usually '').
