The base class for all readers. A reader is a means of reading data from a source in a character-wise manner. Some readers also support marking a position in the input and returning to this position later.
This abstract class does not provide a fully working implementation, so it needs to be subclassed, and at least the Reader.Read(Char, System.Int32, System.Int32) and Reader.Close methods needs to be overridden. Overriding some of the non-abstract methods is also often advised, since it might result in higher efficiency.
Many specialized readers for purposes like reading from a file already exist in this package.
