[New-bugs-announce] [issue13118] Py_BuildValue format f incorrect description.

Félix-Antoine Fortin report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Félix-Antoine Fortin <felixantoinefortin+python at gmail.com>:

Python/C API Reference Manual, section Utilities, Parsing arguments and building values, function Py_BuildValue.

The description for the format unit "f" is incorrect. It reads "Same as d.", as it should be "Convert a C float to a Python floating point number." since "f" is not the same as "d" when converting double to Python float. 

This was corrected in the documentation of Python 3, from which the proposed description comes.
