[New-bugs-announce] [issue25690] Replacement for unittest.mock.mock_open

New submission from Niv Ben-David:

The unittest.mock module defines a mock_open utility to mock the builtin open function.

During a recent project I found I needed something more. Specifically, mocking different files at the same time, better mocking for operations (like seek, readlines, etc.) among others.

The project can also be found on http://github.com/nivbend/mock-open
