[New-bugs-announce] [issue35870] readline() specification is unclear

Victor Porton report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Victor Porton <porton at narod.ru>:

In https://docs.python.org/3/library/io.html it is forgotten to say whether '\n' is appened to the return value of readline().

It is also unclear what happens if the last line not terminated by '\n' is read.

It is also unclear what is returned if a text file (say with '\r\n' terminators) is read. Is it appended to the return value '\n', '\r\n' or nothing?
