[New-bugs-announce] [issue41087] Argparse int / float default

Bryan report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Bryan <bhlawson at gmail.com>:

parser.add_argument('-e', '--Edge', type = int, default = 0.005, metavar = 'Edge')

Runs fine. Script uses default of 0.005 even when int specified.

But if user tries to change, not an int....
