[New-bugs-announce] [issue10415] readline.insert_text documentation incomplete

Justin Lebar report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Justin Lebar <justin.lebar at gmail.com>:

The readline documentation currently says:

> readline.insert_text(string)
>     Insert text into the command line.

But as far as I can tell, readline.insert_text() does something only when called from startup_hook or pre_input_hook.

Here's an example of someone using the module in a way that works:
