TextWriter

Synopsis

This class writes strings of characters to a stream. Encoding sets the encoding of the produced text; change the object that provides formatting by setting FormatProvider. To change the newline character produced in your text, set the NewLine property. To write to a stream, call either Write() or WriteLine(). To clear the current buffer of characters, use Flush(). As always, Close() allows you to free the resources in use by the TextWriter.
