IO::String is an IO::File (and IO::Handle) compatible class that read or write data from in-core strings. It is really just a simplification of what I needed from Eryq's IO-stringy modules. As such IO::String is a replacement for IO::Scalar. Installation as usual: perl Makefile.PL make make test make install Documentation is embedded in the module.
