List of all members.


Detailed Description

this is the interface class from which all other data transfer classes inherit

it provides mainly read and write operations, skip operations and few other functions.

Note:
the read and write method are similar to the read and write system calls except that they never return negative values, but throw exception instead. returning zero means end of generic_file. The call is blocked if no data is available for reading. write returns the number of bytes written, and never make partial writtings. Thus, it is blocked until all bytes are written or occures an exception inconsequences the returned value is always the value of the argument "size".
