sysread(p1, p2 = v2) public

Reads integer bytes from ios using a low-level read and returns them as a string. Do not mix with other methods that read from ios or you may get unpredictable results. If the optional outbuf argument is present, it must reference a String, which will receive the data. Raises SystemCallError on error and EOFError at end of file.

f ="testfile")
f.sysread(16)   #=> "This is line one"
