%READ_WRITE_ENTIRE_TEXTFILE Read or write a whole text file to/from memory
%
% Read or write an entire text file to/from memory, without leaving the
% file open if an error occurs.
%
% Reading:
%   fstrm = read_write_entire_textfile(fname)
% Writing:
%   read_write_entire_textfile(fname, fstrm)
%
%IN:
%   fname - Pathname of text file to be read in.
%   fstrm - String to be written to the file, including carriage returns.
%
%OUT:
%   fstrm - String read from the file. If an fstrm input is given the
%           output is the same as that input.
