4.9.8 Using getline into a Variable from a Coprocess

When you use ‘command |& getline var’, the output from the coprocess command is sent through a two-way pipe to getline and into the variable var.

In this version of getline, none of the predefined variables are changed and the record is not split into fields. The only variable changed is var. However, RT is set.
