close() - Close the sequence.
filelineno() - Return the line number in the current file.
filename() - Return the name of the file currently being read.

hook_encoded(encoding) - Returns a hook which opens each file with codecs.
input([files[, inplace[, backup[, mode[, openhook]]]]]) - Create an instance of the FileInput class.
isfirstline() - Returns true if the line just read is the first line of its file, otherwise returns false.
isstdin() - Returns true if the last line was read from sys.
