  System.IO.BinaryReader Class
 
 Description
Calling writeTextBlock This class is used to read from a stream containing primitive data in binary (rather than character). This stream is sourced from a file, as in the examples.
 
There are discrete methods for reading individual primitive data type values, such as Bytes and Singles. You must catch the EndOfStreamException when using these discrete data types.
 
For the generic Read method, -1 is returned if the end of stream was encountered. For the array syntax Read methods, a count of 0 will be returned when the end of stream is encountered.
 
When reading from a Binary file, it is crucial that the formatting of data used by BinaryWriter be accurately recognised. Being 1 byte out of sequence can completely destroy the sequencing of the remaining file contents. After writeTextBlock
 Syntax
Constructor Create ( DataStream : System.IO.Stream );
Constructor Create ( DataStream : System.IO.Stream; DataEncoding : System.Text.Encoding );
 Methods
