1.133 PositionableStream

Defined in namespace Smalltalk
Superclass: Stream
Category: Streams-Collections

My instances represent streams where explicit positioning is permitted. Thus, my streams act in a manner to normal disk files: you can read or write sequentially, but also position the file to a particular place whenever you choose. Generally, you’ll want to use ReadStream, WriteStream or ReadWriteStream instead of me to create and use streams.
