The functions (callable) and attributes are documented in:


If you look at prototype for write() in the documentation you will see
it takes two arguments, the second being optional.

The first argument is the text to write, the second is an integer used
as boolean value to indicate if flushing should occur.

You are passing a string instead of integer second argument so of
course you are going to get a TypeError.
