[New-bugs-announce] [issue22155] Out of date code example for tkinter's createfilehandle

New submission from Martin Panter:

The only documentation on “createfilehandle” and friends that I can find looks like it needs updating:


I have been using the equivalent of this instead, for both Python 2 and 3:

import tkinter
widget = tkinter.Tk()
widget.tk.createfilehandler(file, tkinter.READABLE | tkinter.WRITABLE, callback)

However I have no idea if this is a supported, proper way, if one even still exists. The old way was removed by Issue 3638.

BTW, there is a link to release/3.4.1 documentation but that returned a 404 error for me, so I linked to the 3.4.0 doc instead.
