[New-bugs-announce] [issue9739] Output of help(...) is wider than 80 characters

New submission from Case Van Horsen <casevh at gmail.com>:

In several modules, the output of help(some_module) is wider than 80 characters. This results in extra line wrapping and incorrect formatting of the help text.

I've attached a single patch (doc_width1.diff) that corrects the issue for math, cmath, tuple, datetime, and time modules. I can continue to create patches for a few modules at a time, or I can create patches for individual modules.

I'm not changing any text, only adding \n as needed.
