IO(3)                  Perl Programmers Reference Guide                  IO(3)



NAME
       IO - load(7,n) various IO modules

SYNOPSIS
           use IO qw(Handle File);  # loads IO modules, here IO::Handle, IO::File
           use IO;                  # DEPRECATED

DESCRIPTION
       "IO" provides a simple mechanism to load(7,n) several of the IO modules in(1,8)
       one go.  The IO modules belonging to the core are:

             IO::Handle
             IO::Seekable
             IO::File
             IO::Pipe
             IO::Socket
             IO::Dir
             IO::Select
             IO::Poll

       Some other IO modules don't belong to the perl core but can be loaded
       as well if(3,n) they have been installed from CPAN.  You can discover(1,3,5) which
       ones exist by searching for "^IO::" on http://search.cpan.org.

       For more information on any of these modules, please see its respective
       documentation.

DEPRECATED
           use IO;                # loads all the modules listed below

       The loaded modules are IO::Handle, IO::Seekable, IO::File, IO::Pipe,
       IO::Socket, IO::Dir.  You should instead explicitly import the IO mod-
       ules you want.
