FileStream.ReadByte Method ()
Reads a byte from the file and advances the read position one byte.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Notes to Implementers:
The default implementation on Stream creates a new single-byte array and then calls Read. 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 reads the buffer directly, avoiding the extra array allocation on every call.
