Lineout   built-in function

The Lineout function attempts to write a sequence of characters as a line to an output stream and returns how many lines remain to be written. When all characters are written 0 is returned, otherwise 1 is returned.

When all characters could not be written the NOTREADY condition is raised.

CAUTION: in some environments a Lineout request may erase all existing data in the stream.

When the string and line# arguments are both omitted, the stream is CLOSED and 0 is returned.

When the string argument is omitted, and the line# arguments is present the current write position of the stream is set to the specified line number, and 0 is returned.
