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 expli-
     citly import the IO modules you want.
