pike.git/CHANGES:778:      o Stdio.Buffer():       This is a byte buffer (unlike String.Buffer which is a string    buffer, and thus contains unicode characters and not bytes) that is    optimized for both reading from it and adding data to it at the    same time.       The main intent of the class is buffering for binary and non-binary    protocol parsing and output, and also buffering when using -  non-blockign I/O. +  non-blocking I/O.      o Stdio.File():       + send_fd and receive_fd    These functions can be used to send and receive an open    file-descriptor over another file-descriptor. The functions are    only available on some systems, and they generally only work    when the file the descriptors are sent over is a UNIX domain    socket or a pipe.
