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


NAME
       IO - load 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 several of the IO
       modules in 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 they have been installed from
       CPAN.  You can discover 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 explic-
       itly import the IO modules you want.
