IO::Lines(3)	      User Contributed Perl Documentation	  IO::Lines(3)

NAME
       IO::Lines - IO::	interface for reading/writing an array of lines

SYNOPSIS
	   use IO::Lines;

	   ### See IO::ScalarArray for details

DESCRIPTION
       This class implements objects which behave just like FileHandle (or
       IO::Handle) objects, except that	you may	use them to write to (or read
       from) an	array of lines.	 "tiehandle" capable as	well.

       This is a subclass of IO::ScalarArray in	which the underlying array has
       its data	stored in a line-oriented-format: that is, every element ends
       in a "\n", with the possible exception of the final element.  This
       makes "getline()" much more efficient; if you plan to do	line-oriented
       reading/printing, you want this class.

       The "print()" method will enforce this rule, so you can print arbitrary
       data to the line-array: it will break the data at newlines
       appropriately.

       See IO::ScalarArray for full usage and warnings.
