Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

protected void Write7BitEncodedInt(
	int value
)
protected:
void Write7BitEncodedInt(
	int value
)
member Write7BitEncodedInt : 
        value:int -> unit

The integer of the value parameter is written out seven bits at a time, starting with the seven least-significant bits. The high bit of a byte indicates whether there are more bytes to be written after this one.

If value will fit in seven bits, it takes only one byte of space. If value will not fit in seven bits, the high bit is set on the first byte and written out. value is then shifted by seven bits and the next byte is written. This process is repeated until the entire integer has been written.
