Detailed Description

This class defines an abstract interface for output streams.

Classes inheriting this class can be used to write bytes to files, sockets, memory etc.

See also
StreamWriter for a class that can be used to write various kinds of data to an OutputStream
Note
stream classes are not designed to be accessed from multiple threads; they have been implemented without locking for fast and efficient use when used from a single thread. For methods that would be unsafe to use in another thread, any use of such methods in threads other than the thread where the constructor was called will cause a STREAM-THREAD-ERROR to be thrown, unless the stream is handed off to another thread using the StreamBase::unassignThread() method in the thread that currently owns the stream, and the StreamBase::reassignThread() method in the new thread.

◆ close()

abstract nothing Qore::OutputStream::close ( )
pure virtual

Flushes any buffered (unwritten) bytes, closes the output stream and releases all resources.

Any methods called on a closed output stream will throw an exception.

Implemented in Qore::FileOutputStream, Qore::StringOutputStream, Qore::StdoutOutputStream, Qore::StderrOutputStream, Qore::EncodingConversionOutputStream, Qore::BinaryOutputStream, Qore::PipeOutputStream, and Qore::TransformOutputStream.

◆ constructor()

Qore::OutputStream::constructor ( )

Constructor.

Used by subclasses defined in the Qore programming language.

◆ write()

abstract nothing Qore::OutputStream::write ( binary  data)
pure virtual
