GZipStream Constructor (Stream, CompressionMode, Boolean)
Initializes a new instance of the GZipStream class by using the specified stream and compression mode, and optionally leaves the stream open.
Assembly: System (in System.dll)
- Type: System.IO.Stream
The stream the compressed or decompressed data is written to.
- Type: System.IO.Compression.CompressionMode
One of the enumeration values that indicates whether to compress or decompress the stream.
By default, GZipStream owns the underlying stream, so closing the stream parameter also closes the underlying stream. Note that the state of the underlying stream can affect the usability of the stream. Also, no explicit checks are performed, so no additional exceptions are thrown when the new instance is created.
If an instance of the GZipStream class is created with the mode parameter equal to Compress and no further action occurs, the stream will appear as a valid, empty compressed file.
