Classes that Implement IResourceReader

Class Description
ResourceReader Enumerates .resources files and streams, reading sequential resource name and value pairs.
ResXResourceReader Enumerates XML resource (.resx) files and streams, and reads the sequential resource name and value pairs.


Resource readers are used to read a stream of resource files in a particular file format. Implement this interface when you need to control the way in which a resource file is read (for example, if the resouce file was written using a customized ResourceWriter). Otherwise, use the default ResourceReader or ResXResourceReader.See the Developing World-Ready Applications for details on the default resource file format.
