       Prima::InputLine - standard input line widget


       The class provides basic functionality of an input line, including
       hidden input, read-only state, selection, and clipboard operations. The
       input line text data is contained in text property.

           either interactively or as a result of direct call.

       textRef SCALAR_REF
           If not undef, contains reference to the scalar that holds the text
           of the input line. All changes to ::text property are reflected
           there.  The direct write access to the scalar is not recommended
           because it leaves internal structures inconsistent, and the only
           way to synchronize structures is to set-call either ::textRef or
           ::text after every such change.
