A set of classes for working with sequences of bytes that are not contiguously allocated.
A collection class implementing
IList<byte> which allows both sequential and random access to individual bytes or byte ranges. Internally, the data is stored as a linked list of 4KB blocks, designed to avoid the
OutOfMemoryException that can occur when trying to allocate large contiguous arrays in .NET.
The class offers several methods for copying data to and from byte arrays, unmanaged memory and
Stream objects. It also implements
ICloneable for duplicating the data. Both binary and XML serialization are supported.
Stream-derived class that uses an
NcByteCollection as its backing store. Designed as a replacement for
MemoryStream in situations where the length is large or varies greatly.
