binistream provides an input-only binary stream.
Int readInt(unsigned int size)
size(in bytes) from the stream and returns it. The return value is undefined if an error occured. The maximum number of bytes that can be read at once equals the size (in bytes) of the largest integer type, supported by the system.
Float readFloat(FType ft)
ft. Refer to the list of public types of the
binioclass for information about what floating-point formats are supported. The return value is undefined if an error occured. The value from the stream is always rendered to the biggest floating-point type, supported by the system.
If your architecture is incompatible with the floating-point number
that has just been read,
readFloat() tries to convert it. This
is sometimes not possible or not as accurate as the original value and
an error will be issued in these cases. Refer to the list of public
types of the
binio class for information about what errors
could be issued.
unsigned long readString(char *str, unsigned long maxlen, char delim = '\0')
std::string readString(char delim = '\0')
stringobjects are supported.
The ASCIIZ version takes a pointer to the pre-allocated
string buffer as the
maxlen specifies the
maximum number of characters to be read from the stream (not
including the trailing
\0 that is always appended to the string
buffer). The optional argument
delim is a delimiter
character. If this character is encountered in the stream, no more
characters will be read. The delimiter character itself is
discarded. It will not appear in the final string. If the
argument is omitted, it defaults to
string object version just takes one optional argument, the
delimiter character, explained above. Characters are always read until
the delimiter character or the end of the stream is encountered. If
delim is omitted, it defaults to
\0. It returns a
string object, containing the final string.
void ignore(unsigned long amount = 1)
amountis omitted, it defaults to
1, ignoring exactly 1 byte from the stream.
