Storages & Files CreateMemoryStream
CreateMemoryStream method 

Creates a stream in the memory and returns SFStream object for it.


Set strm = object.CreateMemoryStream


The memory streams act like any other stream but they are in-memory and the application always has full access rights to them. Therefore no creation flags are used in this method.

Note that you can perform all the available actions on the memory streams - read/write as binary or text, attach SFRecord object and navigate through the records defined by it etc. Using the copy/move operations implemented by the SFStream object a part or the entire stream can be easily transferred from/to file or other kind of stream resources when needed. The applications which use small amount of data can achieve great performance increase by caching their data in the memory instead of using it from the file system or other locations.
