[New-bugs-announce] [issue32341] itertools "generators"?

Stefan Pochmann report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Stefan Pochmann <stefan.pochmann at gmail.com>:

The itertools page https://docs.python.org/3.6/library/itertools.html says "Combinatoric generators:" above the table with product(), permutations(), etc. But as far as I understand, they're not generators and they don't produce generator iterators. I think the table title should be "Combinatoric iterators:" instead, in line with "Infinite Iterators:" and "Iterators terminating on the shortest input sequence:" of the two tables above it.
