Maybe the documentation needs to state that lines(), read("*n"), and
read("*l") work on text files, not binary? I don't think these
functions make any sense for binary files.
May be it needs to state something like:
"output of these functions is undefined if the processed file
contain null characters"
(because there seems to be no standard providing definition
of the term "text file").
