  Description     : Emulate IO::File interface for in-core strings

  [ from the readme ]
  The IO::String module provide the IO::File interface for in-core
  strings.  An IO::String object can be attached to a string, and
  will make it possible to use the normal file operations for reading or
  writing data, as well as seeking to various locations of the string.
  The main reason you might want to do this, is if you have some other
  library module that only provide an interface to file handles, and you
  want to keep all the stuff in memory.

  The IO::String module provide an interface compatible with
  IO::File as distributed with IO-1.20, but the following methods
  are not available; new_from_fd, fdopen, format_write,
  format_page_number, format_lines_per_page, format_lines_left,
  format_name, format_top_name.

 This is different to IO::Stringy (libio-stringy-perl).
   ".. As such IO::String is a replacement for IO::Scalar. "
