Releases all resources used by the Stream.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
This method disposes the stream, by writing any changes to the backing store and closing the stream to release resources.
Note that because of backward compatibility requirements, this method's implementation differs from the recommended guidance for the Dispose pattern. This method calls Close, which then calls Stream::Dispose(Boolean).
