Bug #119755, was updated on 2000-Oct-30 06:05
Here is a current snapshot of the bug.

Project: Python
Category: Documentation
Status: Open
Resolution: None
Bug Group: None
Priority: 5
Summary: sys.getdefaultencoding undocumented

Details: I can't find any documentation of the getdefaultencoding function of module sys (though I can guess what it does...), nor any explanation about how to set/change the default encoding (or assertion that it cannot be changed).

Comment:
Since the default encoding is 'ascii' unless one edits site.py or
sitecustomize.py to use something else, there is not much to document
here ;-)

Anyway, documentation was already written and will show up with
the next documentation release, I guess.... Fred ?
