- - test_write_lines <text>

-   Split <text> to white-space separated words and write it out on standard

+   Write <lines> on standard output, one line per argument.
    Useful to prepare multi-line files in a compact form.
 
    Example:

+       test_write_lines a b c d e f g >foo
 
    Is a more compact equivalent of:
