Exposes access to the underlying stream of the BinaryReader.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Using the underlying stream while reading or while using the BinaryReader can cause data loss and corruption. For example, the same bytes might be read more than once, bytes might be skipped, or character reading might become unpredictable.
For a list of common I/O tasks, see Common I/O Tasks.
The following code example shows how to read and write Double data to memory by using the BinaryReader and BinaryWriter classes on top of the MemoryStream class. MemoryStream only reads and writes Byte data.
