A few new functions in InStream/OutStream #1300

This adds a few functions to InStream and OutStream which have proven useful for me multiple times (I finally got tired of defining them in my own projects).

To InStream, I added skipBytes. This provides a heavy handed way of seeking forward in any kind of stream. Useful for e.g. parsing the header of a binary format and skipping over unused areas.

To OutStream, I added writeInt, writeIntLe, and writeIntBe. Read versions of these functions already exist in InStream.

add int writing functions to OutStream
added: writeInt, writeIntLe, and writeIntBe
add skipBytes function to InStream
this reads N bytes, discarding their values
