The trace module command-line utility doesn't write cover files. I've noticed this issue for some years now. It works fine in Python 2. When using Python 3, no ".cover" files are written, regardless of how "--coverdir" is specified.

    mike on macbook in ~/
    $ echo 'print("hello")' >

    mike on macbook in ~/
    $ python -m trace --count

    mike on macbook in ~/
    $ ls *.cover
    ls: *.cover: No such file or directory

My apologies if this is a duplicate bug. I searched the tracker and Google for a while, but couldn't find a relevant issue.
