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

           use IO::Lines;

           ### See IO::ScalarArray for details

       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.  They can be
       tiehandle'd 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.
