[SciPy-user] optimize.brent* full_output=1 ?

I found that some docstrings in optimize don't say which additional 
outputs the user gets if full_output = 1. Especially brentq, brenth, 
bisect and ridder are called via _zeros.<func> and so I can't see what 
it's doing.

docstrings not OK: bisect, brentq, brenth, golden, ridder

In [43]: scipy.__version__
Out[43]: ''

BTW, I have no experience in wrapping C or Fortran and stuff, so what 
are the .so files (e.g. _zeros.so)?


Random number generation is the art of producing pure gibberish as 
quickly as possible.
