Streamwriter too large


#1

Is there anyway to bring the streamwriter buffer size down from 4k?

Its way too large. My application is using a lot of memory and I am having a hard time sparing the memory for StreamWriter. I have seen that the buffer size has been reduced on other .netmf platforms.

Is there a chance we could do something similar?


#2

You can take stream writer code and rebuild your own smaller version maybe? Not sure how easy this would be.

Or make your own library instead.


#3

I think that I was able to accomplish this by creating a filestream object and passing that object into the streamwriter constructor.

The FileStream constructor has a param that allows you to specify buffer size.\

EDIT: I don’t think that worked. Despite specifying the buffer size when instancing File Stream, it seems StreamWriter must still have its pound of flesh.
