[New-bugs-announce] [issue20423] io.StringIO newline param has wrong default
report at bugs.python.org
Tue Jan 28 20:24:38 CET 2014
New submission from couplewavylines:
In io.StringIO, the newline argument's default is currently documented as "newline=None" in the section header. However, it's described this way: "The default is to do no newline translation." The behavior of io.StringIO is consistent with this description (NO newline translation).
The header should actually read "newline=''".
"newline=None" would mean there IS newline translation by default, which is not the case. Code sample attached as no_translation.py.
