Implement a new function : StdOutReadLine

Hi there,

I would like to see a new function in AutoIT : StdOutReadLine.

This function would return only the first line not already read of a program output.

It could also be implemented with only a new parameter for the number of bytes to read (even if it has to wait for these bytes).

I'm asking for this feature because StdOutRead is quite hard to use especially when you need to read some progression from the output.

Usually it takes some big post-processing to parse it and so it slows down the main program.

Thank you very much for developping AutoIT.

Reads (only) a line from the STDOUT stream of a previously run child process.

Like oExec.stdout.readline for the WshScriptExec object.
It might be useful for Robocopy or other commandline programms which writes without stops into the stream buffer.
