[New-bugs-announce] [issue18315] bufsize parameter not documented in 2.7.5

New submission from Terrel Shumway:

for line in fileinput.input(files,inplace,backup,"rU"):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/fileinput.py", line 253, in next
    line = self.readline()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/fileinput.py", line 346, in readline
    self._buffer = self._file.readlines(self._bufsize)
TypeError: an integer is required

According to the documentation, my code was correct. But somewhere along the line, someone added a 'bufsize' parameter and didn't update the docstrings.

It's an easy fix, but I'll have to investigate when this broke.
