Chapter 8. Object In, Object Out

only for RuBoard

I/O in the .NET framework centers on the stream . Think of a stream as a flow of data. The process of using a stream can be likened to two people standing at opposite ends of a river . The person upstream puts a message in a bottle and drops it in. Downstream, the other person waits with a net to pull the bottle out and get the message. The only difference between a .NET stream and this allegorical river is that the stream flows both ways.

The stream is a useful abstraction that makes it possible to read and write data to and from a variety of sources generically. For the most part, the operations for reading bytes from a file, from memory, or from a network socket are identical.
