It's special this time here:
while not $stdin.eof do
puts $stdin.readline while not $stdin.eof
Ok, but isn't that very different to using the $stdin.readlines function?
In the context of the two examples above,
$stdin.readline yields the same results as $stdin.readlines.
So, as far as the result of my programs above I see no difference. At this
stage, I do not know if there are any underlying differences. All I know is
that I get the results I expected.
