Could you provide practical usage examples for this ?


Thanks a lot !

I'd echo Norbert. These PyMOTW articles add little over the fine manual because there's often no practical usage given.

Norbert - One purpose of "fixing" the name and docstring is so when you generate documentation for a decorated function you see its information instead of the details for the decorator.
