Provides a StreamWriter with no backing store that can be written to, but not read from.
(in mscorlib.dll) System.IO
public static readonly StreamWriter Null
Use Null to redirect output to a StreamWriter that will not consume any operating system resources.
When the StreamWriter.Write methods are invoked on Null, the call simply returns, and no data is actually written to any backing store.
For a list of common I/O tasks, see Common I/O Tasks.
The following example demonstrates a use of the Null field.
sw.WriteLine("The store can be written to, but not read from.");
