TextReaderCF 1.0, ECMA 1.0, serializable, marshal by reference, disposable

System.IO (mscorlib.dll)abstract class

This class is optimized to read a stream of sequential characters. The Read( ) methods read data from the front of a stream, and Peek( ) looks at the first character without advancing the position of an associated stream. If you need a thread-safe TextReader, use Synchronized( ) to create a thread-safe copy of a TextReader.
