Description [src]

Reads an entire line from a file into a buffer.

Lines may be delimited with ‘\n’, ‘\r’, ‘\n\r’, or ‘\r\n’. The delimiter is not written into the buffer. Text after a ‘#’ character is treated as a comment and skipped. ‘' can be used to escape a # character. ‘' proceeding a line delimiter combines adjacent lines. A ‘' proceeding any other character is ignored and written into the output buffer unmodified.
