Standard Lua library to create, write, and read files.

Applications running on a device are "sandboxed", meaning your files (application images, data, preferences, etc.) are stored in a location that no other application can access. Your files will reside in an app-specific directory for documents, resources, or temporary files. The io library functions allow you to manage these resources.
