Introduced in 5.0.0

Read a string of bytes terminated with a newline or end-of-file. The line terminator(s), if any, are included in the returned string.

On success returns a pointer to a new ALLEGRO_USTR structure. This must be freed eventually with al_ustr_free. Returns NULL if an error occurred or if the end of file was reached without reading any bytes.

See al_fopen about translations of end-of-line characters.
