TextReader and TextWriter Classes in C#

This article has been excerpted from book "The Complete Visual C# Programmer's Guide" from the Authors of C# Corner.

Like the abstract Stream class, which provides the base of all byte streams, the abstract TextReader and TextWriter classes provide the base for all character streams. These classes are used to read and write a sequential stream of Unicode characters. Since these classes read and write characters, streams extending these classes can do specific encoding for localization purposes. TextReader and TextWriter do not provide random access. Table 6.11 lists some of the methods used with the TextReader class, and Table 6.12 lists methods to be used with TextWriter.
