i am trying to use the os.tmpfile() method to create a file object for
but i am seeing weird behaviour that i certainly don't expect:
>>> import os
>>> f1 = os.tmpfile()
<open file '<tmpfile>', mode 'w+' at eed68>
'\000\000\000\000\000\000\000\000\...long, long list of \000 '
Nothing is the FAQ about tmpfile().
any notions about this. I would really prefer not to write a file
but rather just write the data to a file object.
...and for lunch, Ken stops by the side of the road
and rubs gravel into his hair.
