RS - record separator

Perl's $/ and awk's RS is from C's getline:

#include <stdio.h>

getdelim, getline -- get a line from a stream

The getdelim() function reads a line from stream, delimited by the character
delimiter.  The getline() function is equivalent to getdelim() with the new-
line character as the delimiter.  The delimiter character is included as
part of the line, unless the end of the file is reached.
