#2488 closed bug (fixed)

ByteString hGet documentation is incomplete

All four versions of hGet for the various Data.ByteString implementations claim that it "[reads] n bytes into a ByteString." This is not always the case. For example, it appears that on EOF less than n bytes are read. The conditions under which it will not succeed in reading n bytes into a ByteString (be it less than n, or it raising some sort of error) should be documented.

Fixed. I've documented hGet's behaviour wrt. EOF and handles closing. The next release will contain this documentation.
