Nick Coghlan added the comment: Yeah, I'm wary of the GC hack as well. It's a nice way to prove that this the internal cache is the problem, but probably not something we want to commit.
A "codecs._forget_codec" helper in the C module would be all that was needed to handle it. Other implementations could then also use that to clear their own internal cache (if they have one). ---------- _______________________________________ Python tracker <rep...@bugs.python.org> <http://bugs.python.org/issue22166> _______________________________________ _______________________________________________ Python-bugs-list mailing list Unsubscribe: https://mail.python.org/mailman/options/python-bugs-list/archive%40mail-archive.com
