TIdStream Type

Implements a stream wrapper for the platforms supported by the Indy library.

TIdStream = TStream;

TIdStream is a TObject descendant that specifies a wrapper for stream classes. TIdStream isolates the differences between stream implementations for the platforms supported by the Indy library. 

To minimize the number of overloaded methods required for TStream and .Net Stream arguments, TIdStream provides an implict converter as a class operator for VCL to .Net stream types. 

TIdStream overrides provides methods used for reading and writing to the stream that isolate the differences between pointers and memory allocation for the .Net platform.
