This module implements a file-like class, StringIO,
that reads and writes a string buffer (also known as memory
files). See the description on file objects for operations (section
- StringIO ([buffer])
When a StringIO object is created, it can be initialized
to an existing string by passing the string to the constructor.
If no string is given, the StringIO will start empty.
The following methods of StringIO objects require special
- getvalue ()
Retrieve the entire contents of the ``file'' at any time before the
StringIO object's close() method is called.
- close ()
Free the memory buffer.
