Old Buffer Protocol

This section describes the legacy buffer protocol, which has been introduced in Python 1.6. It is still supported but deprecated in the Python 2.x series. Python 3.0 introduces a new buffer protocol which fixes weaknesses and shortcomings of the protocol, and has been backported to Python 2.6. See :ref:`bufferobjects` for more information.
