Caveats & Notes

lineevent will be fired for each of them.
- The delimiter is not included in the line passed to the
- Even though this is called

"\n\n"will read by paragraph (sort of).
- You can set the delimiter to a regular expression, which let's you do cool things like drop multiple blank lines:
- All methods return
