Interface for streams based on a connection.
: Stream ;
Connection streams are based on streaming socket connections, pipes and similar end-to-end streams.
|Determines The current connection status.|
|Queries if there is data available for immediate, non-blocking read.|
|Returns true iff the end of the input stream has been reached.|
|Returns the maximum number of bytes that are known to remain in this stream until the end is reached. After leastSize() bytes have been read, the stream will either have reached EOS and empty() returns true, or leastSize() returns again a number > 0.|
|Actively closes the connection and frees associated resources.|
|Sets a timeout until data has to be availabe for read. Returns false on timeout.|
|Flushes and finalizes the stream.|
|Flushes the stream and makes sure that all data is being written to the output device.|
|Returns a temporary reference to the data that is currently buffered, typically has the size leastSize() or 0 if dataAvailableForRead() returns false.|
|Fills the preallocated array 'bytes' with data from the stream.|
|Writes an array of bytes to the stream.|
|Writes an array of chars to the stream.|
|Pipes an InputStream directly into this OutputStream.|
