| C-d causes the read() system call to return immediately.

  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.


| Sorry about the long off topic rant about arcane obscurities. ;)

  It would have been OK if you got it right.

Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
