InputStream class Null safety

A buffer that can be read as a stream of bytes



InputStream(dynamic data, {int byteOrder = LITTLE_ENDIAN, int start = 0, int? length})
Create a InputStream for reading from a List
InputStream.from(InputStream other)
Create a copy of other.


buffer List<int>
read / write
byteOrder int
read / write
hashCode int
The hash code for this object. [...]
read-only, inherited
isEOS bool
Is the current position at the end of the stream?
read-only, override
length int
How many bytes are left in the stream.
read-only, override
offset int
read / write
position int
The current read position relative to the start of the buffer.
read-only, override
runtimeType Type
A representation of the runtime type of the object.
read-only, inherited
start int
read / write


indexOf(int value, [int offset = 0]) int
Returns the position of the given value within the buffer, starting from the current read position with the given offset. The position returned is relative to the start of the buffer, or -1 if the value was not found.
noSuchMethod(Invocation invocation) → dynamic
Invoked when a non-existent method or property is accessed. [...]
peekBytes(int count, [int offset = 0]) InputStream
Read count bytes from an offset of the current read position, without moving the read position.
readByte() int
Read a single byte.
readBytes(int count) InputStream
Read count bytes from the stream.
readString({int? size, bool utf8 = true}) String
Read a null-terminated string, or if len is provided, that number of bytes returned as a string.
readUint16() int
Read a 16-bit word from the stream.
readUint24() int
Read a 24-bit word from the stream.
readUint32() int
Read a 32-bit word from the stream.
readUint64() int
Read a 64-bit word form the stream.
reset() → void
Reset to the beginning of the stream.
rewind([int length = 1]) → void
Rewind the read head of the stream by the given number of bytes.
skip(int count) → void
Move the read position by count bytes.
subset([int? position, int? length]) InputStream
Return a InputStream to read a subset of this stream. It does not move the read position of this stream. position is specified relative to the start of the buffer. If position is not specified, the current read position is used. If length is not specified, the remainder of this stream is used.
toString() String
A string representation of this object. [...]
toUint8List() Uint8List


operator ==(Object other) bool
The equality operator. [...]
operator [](int index) int
Access the buffer relative from the current position.
