Full commit
# XXX Temporary addition to Jython while we use _jyio.py in place of _io.
# This module will stand in place of the lib-python io.py. The idea is
# gradually to switch, in _jyio, between Python implementation there and
# Java implementations imported from _io as classes in Java. In the end,
# we delete this and _jyio.py, and go back to using lib-python's io.py

"""The io module provides the Python interfaces to stream handling. The
builtin open function is defined in this module.

At the top of the I/O hierarchy is the abstract base class IOBase. It
defines the basic interface to a stream. Note, however, that there is no
separation between reading and writing to streams; implementations are
allowed to throw an IOError if they do not support a given operation.

Extending IOBase is RawIOBase which deals simply with the reading and
writing of raw bytes to a stream. FileIO subclasses RawIOBase to provide
an interface to OS files.

BufferedIOBase deals with buffering on a raw byte stream (RawIOBase). Its
subclasses, BufferedWriter, BufferedReader, and BufferedRWPair buffer
streams that are readable, writable, and both respectively.
BufferedRandom provides a buffered interface to random access
streams. BytesIO is a simple stream of in-memory bytes.

Another IOBase subclass, TextIOBase, deals with the encoding and decoding
of streams into text. TextIOWrapper, which extends it, is a buffered text
interface to a buffered raw stream (`BufferedIOBase`). Finally, StringIO
is a in-memory stream for text.

Argument names are not part of the specification, and only the arguments
of open() are intended to be used as keyword arguments.

data:

DEFAULT_BUFFER_SIZE

   An int containing the default buffer size used by the module's buffered
   I/O classes. open() uses the file's blksize (as obtained by os.stat) if
   possible.
"""
# New I/O library conforming to PEP 3116.

# XXX edge cases when switching between reading/writing
# XXX need to support 1 meaning line-buffered
# XXX whenever an argument is None, use the default value
# XXX read/write ops should check readable/writable
# XXX buffered readinto should work with arbitrary buffer objects
# XXX use incremental encoder for text output, at least for UTF-16 and UTF-8-SIG
# XXX check writable, readable and seekable in appropriate places
