[New-bugs-announce] [issue22199] Embedding Python documentation error

Jim Carroll report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Jim Carroll:

On the page https://docs.python.org/2/extending/embedding.html#compiling-and-linking-under-unix-like-systems

The documentation makes the following reference:

"...(use sysconfig.get_makefile_filename() to find its location)..."

But this is incorrect. sysconfig was modified in 3.x (Issue 9877) to use this new name. In 2.x, the function has an underscore prefix:
