use IO::Lines; ### See IO::ScalarArray for details
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.
