Thank you for re-explaining what was obviously impossible to understand from what I already posted. | Line-oriented mode *is* device-level reads, and there really is no | true end-of-file. Please work harder to get the point. | So to the applications, it looks like there really is a piece of hardware | that delivers entire lines of input to the operating system. Wrong. | Sorry about the long off topic rant about arcane obscurities. ;) It would have been OK if you got it right. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
