Name

StreamWriter

Synopsis

This class implements TextWriter and provides all its methods. If you set the AutoFlush property, every call to Write() or WriteLine() flushes the buffer.

This class is a quick way to open a file for writing. Call the constructor with a string containing the filename, and you can immediately begin writing to the file with Write() or WriteLine().

public class StreamWriter : TextWriter {
