In the documentation for the curses module- 15.11 in Python 2.7 (, the given key values for Page Up and Page Down are "KEY_NPAGE" and "KEY_PPAGE" respectively. These should be reversed.

This has been fixed in the documentation for 3.5 and 3.6 but not in the previous versions. See this bug report:

Good catch, I forgot to update 2.7 (3.2, 3.3 and 3.4 are in security-fix-only mode so they don't get documentation updates anymore).
