Essential Tools Module User's Guide

5.1 Introduction

The Essential Tools Module Virtual Stream Classes let you perform streaming operations such as transferring information between operating systems with the efficiency of a binary stream. The endian streams mechanism, which keeps a record of the operating environment where information originates, allows the stream to be read on any system regardless of its native size or byte order.

Table 8 lists the Virtual Stream Classes. This chapter provides information on using some of these classes; the Essential Tools Module Reference Guide provides detailed information on each class in this class group.
