[New-bugs-announce] [issue11234] Possible error in What's new Python3.2(rc3) documentation (sysconfig.get_config_var)

New submission from Carl Chenet <chaica at ohmytux.com>:

Hi,

It seems a mistake could be in the "What's new in Python 3.2" (rc3) documentation in the sysconfig.get_config_var('SO') example :

>>> sysconfig.get_config_var('SO')       # find the full filename extension
'cpython-32mu.so'

On my system (Debian GNU/Linux, Python3.2rc3), the same command gives :
 
>>> sysconfig.get_config_var('SO')
'.cpython-32m.so'

A dot at the beginning of the string could be missing in the example of the current documentation. This dot also appears in the example of the PEP 3149.

Regards,
Carl Chenet
