 Current documentation on hackage:

 hGetLine :: Handle -> IO String

 Computation hGetLine hdl reads a line from the file or channel managed by
 hdl.

 This operation may fail with:

     isEOFError if the end of file is encountered when reading the first
 character of the line.

 If hGetLine encounters end-of-file at any other point while reading in a
 line, it is treated as a line terminator and the (partial) line is
 returned.
