Writes a byte to the current position in the stream and advances the position within the stream by one byte.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
'Declaration Public Overridable Sub WriteByte ( _ value As Byte _ )
public virtual void WriteByte( byte value )
The byte to write to the stream.
Use the CanWrite property to determine whether the current instance supports writing.
Notes to Implementers
The default implementation on Stream creates a new single-byte array and then calls Write. While this is formally correct, it is inefficient. Any stream with an internal buffer should override this method and provide a much more efficient version that writes to the buffer directly, avoiding the extra array allocation on every call.
