[New-bugs-announce] [issue24739] allow argparse.FileType to accept newline argument

New submission from Gary Peck:

argparse.FileType should support a "newline" argument that corresponds to the "newline" parameter to open(). In addition to more closely mirroring the open() API, this is also needed to properly use argparse.FileType with csv.reader() or csv.writer() (which require the file being passed in to have been opened with newline='').
