[New-bugs-announce] [issue9957] SpooledTemporayFile.truncate should take size parameter

Ryan Kelly report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Ryan Kelly <ryan at rfk.id.au>:

Both file.truncate() and StringIO.truncate() accept an optional "size" parameter to truncate the file to a specific size.  SpooledTemporaryFile should accept a similar parameter and pass it on.

The only tricky part is that truncate can potentially increase the size of a file, so it needs to check the max size and rollover if appropriate.

Patch is against py3k branch; should work on trunk modulo the use of b"xxx" in the tests.
