[New-bugs-announce] [issue13513] IOBase docs incorrectly link to the GNU readline module
report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Meador Inge <meadori at gmail.com>:
The current IOBase documentation  reads:
IOBase (and its subclasses) support the iterator protocol, meaning that an IOBase object can be iterated over yielding the lines in a stream. Lines are defined slightly differently depending on whether the stream is a binary stream (yielding bytes), or a text stream (yielding character strings). See readline() below.
Currently the 'readline' link in the last sentence is linking to the GNU readline interface, which is wrong. Patch attached.
