       Archive::Zip::MemberRead - A wrapper that lets you read Zip archive
       members as if they were files.


         use Archive::Zip;
         use Archive::Zip::MemberRead;
         $zip = Archive::Zip->new("");
         $fh  = Archive::Zip::MemberRead->new($zip, "subdir/abc.txt");
         while (defined($line = $fh->getline()))
             print $fh->input_line_number . "#: $line\n";

         $read = $fh->read($buffer, 32*1024);
         print "Read $read bytes as :$buffer:\n";


       The Archive::Zip::MemberRead module lets you read Zip archive member
       data just like you read data from files.


           You can get a "Archive::Zip::MemberRead" from an archive member by
           calling "readFileHandle()":

             my $member = $zip->memberNamed('abc/def.c');
             my $fh = $member->readFileHandle();
             while (defined($line = $fh->getline()))
                 # ...

       Archive::Zip::MemberRead->new($zip, $fileName)
       Archive::Zip::MemberRead->new($zip, $member)
           Construct a new Archive::Zip::MemberRead on the specified member.

             my $fh = Archive::Zip::MemberRead->new($zip, 'fred.c')

           Set the line end character to use. This is set to \n by default
           except on Windows systems where it is set to \r\n. You will only
           need to set this on systems which are not Windows or Unix based and
           require a line end different from \n.  This is a class method so
           call as "Archive::Zip::MemberRead"->"setLineEnd($nl)"

           Rewinds an "Archive::Zip::MemberRead" so that you can read from it
           again starting at the beginning.

           If the argument is given, input_record_separator for this instance
           is set to it. The current setting (which may be the global $/) is
           always returned.

           Returns the current line number, but only if you're using
           "getline()".  Using "read()" will not update the line number.

           Closes the given file handle.

       buffer_size([ $size ])
           Gets or sets the buffer size used for reads.  Default is the chunk
           size used by Archive::Zip.

           Returns the next line from the currently open member.  Makes sense
           only for text files.  A read error is considered fatal enough to
           die.  Returns undef on eof. All subsequent calls would return
           undef, unless a rewind() is called.  Note: The line returned has
           the input_record_separator (default: newline) removed.

       getline( { preserve_line_ending => 1 } )
           Returns the next line including the line ending.

       read($buffer, $num_bytes_to_read)
           Simulates a normal "read()" system call.  Returns the no. of bytes
           read. "undef" on error, 0 on eof, e.g.:

             $fh = Archive::Zip::MemberRead->new($zip, "sreeji/secrets.bin");
             while (1)
               $read = $fh->read($buffer, 1024);
               die "FATAL ERROR reading my secrets !\n" if (!defined($read));
               last if (!$read);
               # Do processing.
