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