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 Encoding and Localization for details on the default resource file format.
