_pytest/python.py

 
         :arg argnames: an argument name or a list of argument names
 
-        :arg argvalues: a list of values for the argname or a list of tuples of
-            values for the list of argument names.
+        :arg argvalues: The list of argvalues determines how often a test is invoked
+            with different argument values.  If only one argname was specified argvalues
+            is a list of simple values.  If N argnames were specified, argvalues must
+            be a list of N-tuples, where each tuple-element specifies a value for its
+            respective argname.
 
         :arg indirect: if True each argvalue corresponding to an argname will
             be passed as request.param to its respective argname fixture
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
