- Subject: Is breaking out of io.lines(file) safe?

I want to iterate over the lines in a file, but break out if a certain
condition is true. The documentation says the EOF is detected and the file
is closed. If I break before the EOF is detected, is the file not closed?
I don't want to leave open file references in my Lua state.
for line in io.lines(filename) do
if condition then break end
