[New-bugs-announce] [issue14201] libc.time != libc['time']

Erik Johansson report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Erik Johansson <erik at ejohansson.se>:

I would expect that the following code would give True as result:

>>> from ctypes import *
>>> libc = CDLL("libc.so.6")
>>> libc.time == libc['time']

Is it by design that libc['time'] always returns a different _FuncPtr object? It is a bit confusing when doing things like:

libc['time'].restype = ...
libc['time'].argtypes = [...]
