A.12.2 The Package Text_IO.Text_Streams
The package Text_IO.Text_Streams provides a function
for treating a text file as a stream.
The library package
Text_IO.Text_Streams has the following declaration:
package Ada.Text_IO.Text_Streams is
type Stream_Access is access all Streams.Root_Stream_Type'Class;
function Stream (File : in File_Type) return Stream_Access;
The Stream function has the same effect as the
corresponding function in Streams.Stream_IO.
34 The ability to obtain
a stream for a text file allows Current_Input, Current_Output, and Current_Error
to be processed with the functionality of streams, including the mixing
of text and binary input-output, and the mixing of binary input-output
for different types.
35 Performing operations
on the stream associated with a text file does not affect the column,
line, or page counts.
