Suggestion: make readLine return either a full line, with the line-ending 
stripped, or nothing at all. If it can't read a full line, then there was no 
line to be read and, therefore, readLine can't return anything.

The consequence of this is that nothing is shown until a full line is output. 
If this isn't desired, the code shouldn't be using readLine().

Also note that the process can exit without outputting a newline, so when it 
finishes, the code has to read without using readLine.
