readln Sets $ret.off, $ret.size - Caveat

In (syntax) version 8 and later, <readln> also sets $ret.off to the file offset of the start of the returned line, and $ret.size to the line's entire byte size in the file (including the unreturned EOL character(s), if any). It also gains the OFFSET option.
