Cincom Smalltalk™ Foundation Series: Xtreams

Xtreams is Cincom Smalltalk’s attempt to modernize streaming, provide more capability and solve some issues or inadequacies in streaming.  Xtreams is an enhancement to typical streaming as well as a generalized stream/iterator framework that provides simple, unified API for reading from different kinds of sources and writing into different kinds of destinations including collections, sockets, files, pipes, etc.  Many of our new and existing features are built on this framework.
