Streams, Files, Readers and Writers

P: n/a
I evidently need to go back to remedial .Net class (I even 'Google'-ed this
and didn't come up with much), as it must be so easy that even a neophyte
could do it. So please help a neo-in-training!

I just want to read a text file into a MemoryStream so as to use the stream
for something else. I have instructions that work (I've tested them) for
the 'something else,' but I'm having severe trials with the
text-to-MemoryStream part. This is what I have (that's not working):

Dim sAppDir As String = Replace(Application.StartupPath(), "bin",
String.Empty)
Dim fileIn As New StreamReader(sAppDir & "Test1.xml")
Dim stream As New MemoryStream(fileIn.ReadToEnd.Length)
Dim writer As New StreamWriter(stream)
Dim fileOut As New StreamWriter(sAppDir & "Test1_Results.txt")

writer.Write(fileIn.ReadToEnd.ToString)

Thanx!

I honestly don't understand what you are trying to do...it looks like
you get your memorystream ok, except that you don't DO anything with it
-- I mean, you intialize it to hold all the text in the xml file, but
then never do anything with it...

Well, I said that I had some example code for the 'do-something-with-it'
part. But it's a mute point now, anyway, 'cause I figured it out and it's
working. It's truly amazing what a decent night's sleep will do for your
perspective...
