View Source IO.Stream (Elixir v1.14.5)

Defines an IO.Stream struct returned by and IO.binstream/2.

The following fields are public:

  • device - the IO device
  • raw - a boolean indicating if bin functions should be used
  • line_or_bytes - if reading should read lines or a given number of bytes

It is worth noting that an IO stream has side effects and every time you go over the stream you may get different results.
