We're back after a server migration that caused effbot.org to fall over a bit harder than expected. Expect some glitches.

IOError

Raised when an I/O operation (such as a print statement, the built-in open function or a method of a file object) fails for an I/O-related reason, e.g., file not found or disk full.

This class is derived from EnvironmentError. See the discussion above for more information on exception instance attributes.
