Not a big deal, but "$ pydoc enum.Enum" and "$ pydoc enum.IntEnum" fail to retrieve the docstrings, while they are visible with "$ pydoc enum".

This is because bool(enum.Enum) is False. Other example:

$ pydoc3 builtins.False
no Python documentation found for 'builtins.False'

$ pydoc3 builtins.True
Help on bool in builtins object:

builtins.True = class bool(int)

Here is simple fix.

Lgtm, needs a test case.

The fix is definitely an improvement. Though there is still one obvious flaw remaining, which applies to any attribute that is set to None:

$ ~/proj/python/cpython/python -bWall -m pydoc builtins.None
No Python documentation found for 'builtins.None'.
Use help() to get the interactive help utility.
Use help(str) for help on the str class.

In 3.5 at least 'pydoc None' works.
msg240855 - (view) Author: Serhiy Storchaka (serhiy.storchaka) * (Python committer) Date: 2015-04-14 08:00
I think we can ignore this flaw. 'pydoc None' works, and any solution for None aliases could break existing code that use private pydoc functions.

Here is a patch with a test.
