Thank you for your explanation.

Do you refer to hPutBuilder in Data.ByteString.Lazy.Builder? If so, I
have a question.

For logging systems, a line of a log message must be guaranteed. Log
messages must not be mangled in a log file.

It seems to me hPutBuilder can grantee lines if Handle's buffering is
the line buffering. However, it seems to me that it cannot grantee
lines if Handle's buffering is the block buffering. Is my
understanding correct?

To implement *multi-line* buffering, we need to know the length of a
log message to be written in advance. If it is larger than the size of
the free space of Handle's buffer, the buffer must be flushed
first. I'm not sure that we can obtain the length of Builder without
