method get

Documentation for method get, assembled from the following types:

class IO::Handle

From IO::Handle

(IO::Handle) routine get

Defined as:

method get(IO::Handle:D: --> Str:D)
multi sub get (IO::Handle $fh = $*ARGFILES --> Str:D)

Reads a single line of input from the handle, removing the trailing newline characters (as set by .nl-in) if the handle's .chomp attribute is set to True. Returns Nil, if no more input is available. The subroutine form defaults to $*ARGFILES if no handle is given.

Attempting to call this method when the handle is in binary mode will result in X::IO::BinaryMode exception being thrown.

$*IN.get.say;              # Read one line from the standard input 
 
my $fh = open 'filename';
$fh.get.say;               # Read one line from a file 
$fh.close;
 
say get;                   # Read one line from $*ARGFILES 

class IO::CatHandle

From IO::CatHandle

(IO::CatHandle) method get

Defined as:

method get(IO::CatHandle:D: --> Bool:D)

Returns a single line of input from the handle, with the new line string defined by the value(s) of $.nl-in attribute, which will be removed from the line if $.chomp attribute attribute is set to True. Returns Nil when there is no more input. It is an error to call this method when the handle is in binary mode, resulting in X::IO::BinaryMode exception being thrown.

(my $f1 = 'foo'.IO).spurt: "a\nb\nc";
(my $f2 = 'bar'.IO).spurt: "d\ne";
my $cat = IO::CatHandle.new: $f1$f2;
.say while $_ = $cat.get# OUTPUT: «a␤b␤c␤d␤e␤» 

class IO::Socket::INET

From IO::Socket::INET
