Both file.truncate() and StringIO.truncate() accept an optional "size" parameter to truncate the file to a specific size.  SpooledTemporaryFile should accept a similar parameter and pass it on.

The only tricky part is that truncate can potentially increase the size of a file, so it needs to check the max size and rollover if appropriate.

Patch is against py3k branch; should work on trunk modulo the use of b"xxx" in the tests.

Thank you for the report and patch.  Not sure if this a bug or a new feature.

Patch looks good, thanks for including a test too!.  Can you also edit the documentation?

(There are very minor whitespace nits in the patch, but I leave it to Georg to fix them or ignore them.)

I went looking for places to update the documentation but the description of SpooledTemporaryFile doesn't go into any detail of its methods, so I haven't added anything.  New patch fixes some whitespace issues.

I'd like to argue that this is a bug, since SpooledTemporaryFile is documented as "operates exactly as TemporaryFile() does", and TemporaryFile.truncate accepts a "size" parameter.

Patch looks good to me, but I’d like another review.

Looks ok to me as well. I think this is a new feature, so 3.3-only IMHO.

Okay, then stable branches need a doc/docstring patch to remove the statement that SpooledTemporaryFile “operates exactly as TemporaryFile does”.  Ryan, would you like to do that patch too?

Antoine, will you commit?

Committed, thank you. By the way, Ryan, we now use Mercurial for developing, the Subversion repository is obsolete (see the devguide for more info).

Shouldn't this issue be closed, or is there more to be done?
