[New-bugs-announce] [issue9158] PyArg_ParseTuple y* documentation is incorrect

Terrence Cole report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Terrence Cole <terrence at zettabytestorage.com>:

The documented C type for y* should be [Py_buffer], not [Py_buffer *], as with the documentation for z* and the convention followed by the other types.

I'm not sure what 'type' this issue should have.  I've set it at 'crash' initially, since that's how the bug manifested for me.
