IO-stringy - I/O on in-core objects like strings and arrays

        use strict;
        use warnings;

        use IO::AtomicFile; # Write a file which is updated atomically
        use IO::InnerFile; # define a file inside another file
        use IO::Lines; # I/O handle to read/write to array of lines
        use IO::Scalar; # I/O handle to read/write to a string
        use IO::ScalarArray; # I/O handle to read/write to array of scalars
        use IO::Wrap; # Wrap old-style FHs in standard OO interface
        use IO::WrapTie; # Tie your handles & retain full OO interface

        # ...

    This toolkit primarily provides modules for performing both traditional
    and object-oriented i/o) on things *other* than normal filehandles; in
    particular, IO::Scalar, IO::ScalarArray, and IO::Lines.

    In the more-traditional IO::Handle front, we have IO::AtomicFile which
    may be used to painlessly create files which are updated atomically.

    And in the "this-may-prove-useful" corner, we have IO::Wrap, whose
    exported wraphandle() function will clothe anything that's not a blessed
    object in an IO::Handle-like wrapper... so you can just use OO syntax
    and stop worrying about whether your function's caller handed you a
    string, a globref, or a FileHandle.
