Ok, but people should not be surprised if their (Python) array.array() of double or their array of ctypes structs is silently accepted by some byte consuming function. How about "object does not provide a byte buffer" for error messages and "(byte) buffer provider" as a shorthand for "any buffer provider that exposes its memory as a sequence of unsigned bytes in response to a PyBUF_SIMPLE request"? ---------- _______________________________________ Python tracker <rep...@bugs.python.org> <http://bugs.python.org/issue16518> _______________________________________ _______________________________________________ Python-bugs-list mailing list Unsubscribe: http://mail.python.org/mailman/options/python-bugs-list/archive%40mail-archive.com
