str-seq-reader - Take a sequence of strings and return a Java Reader that, when read, returns the contents of the concatenation of those strings. Only as much of the sequence as needed by the reader is consumed. Examples of use at the bottom.

;; Examples of use: Read from file with name in-fname, transform each
;; input line with function f, and the resulting transformed contents
;; will be readable from Java Reader rdr2.
;; In this example, I am simply printing the contents of rdr2 to an
;; output file with name out-fname, but in general you could do
;; anything with the value of rdr2 that you would do with a Java
;; Reader.

;; Examples:
;; Note that because of the mapcat call above, the function takes one
;; string as an argument, but it should return a sequence of strings
;; as its return value, or nil for no strings at all. Since line-seq
;; removes the line terminator character(s) from the ends of input
;; lines, you must provide them as part of the returned string
;; sequence, either by concatenating them, or as a separate element of
;; the sequence.
