Int64 Int64 Int64 Int64

The number of "blocks" of data to be read from the item.

Returns

An array of the blocks of data read from the item.

Remarks

A "block" of content is provider specific. For the file system a "block" may be considered a line of text, a byte, a character, or delimited string.

The implementation of this method should break the content down into meaningful blocks that the user may want to manipulate individually. The number of blocks to return is indicated by the readCount parameter.
