problem with NamedTemporaryFile on windows platforms

Issue #18 closed
Anonymous created an issue

There is a problem on Windows with NamedTemporaryFile:

NamedTemporaryFile actually creates the file for you, there's no need for you to open it for write.

In fact, the Python docs state:

Whether the name can be used to open the file a second time, while the named temporary file is still open, varies across platforms (it can be so used on Unix; it cannot on Windows NT or later).

        t_cookie_file = tempfile.NamedTemporaryFile(suffix='.sqlite', mode="wb", delete=False)
        t_cookie_file.write(open(cookie_file, 'rb').read())
        tmp_cookie_file =

Instead of:

        tmp_cookie_file = tempfile.NamedTemporaryFile(suffix='.sqlite').name
        open(tmp_cookie_file, 'wb').write(open(cookie_file, 'rb').read())
