LineNumberInputStream class is an input stream filter that provides the added functionality of keeping track of the current line number.
A line is a sequence of bytes ending with a carriage return character (‘\r’), a newline character (‘\n’), or a carriage return character followed immediately by a linefeed character. In all three cases, the line terminating character(s) are returned as a single newline character.
The line number begins at 0, and is incremented by 1 when a read returns a newline character.
