Subject Re: [io][collections/iterators] a line by line iterator from an input stream?
Date Wed, 14 Jul 2004 21:26:20 GMT
There is no iterator as you describe at present.

I have plans in my head to add more read methods to io including


However, an iterator to achieve the lines approach would also be a useful
addition for larger files.

If you create one, with apache licence and tests, please attach it to a
bugzilla enhancement report and we can try to include it in v1.1.
