Node:Peeking, Next:, Previous:Reading and Writing, Up:Usage


Analogous to the readInt() and readFloat() methods are the peekInt(size) and peekFloat(type) methods, that take the same arguments and also read an integer or a floating-point number from the stream. Unlike their "read" counterparts, they don't modify the stream position. The next "real" access (i.e. with one of the read methods) to the stream will continue as if the peek methods have never been called.
