Stdout class Null safety

An IOSink connected to either the standard out or error of the process.

Provides a blocking IOSink, so using it to write will block until the output is written.

In some situations this blocking behavior is undesirable as it does not provide the same non-blocking behavior that dart:io in general exposes. Use the property nonBlocking to get an IOSink which has the non-blocking behavior.

This class can also be used to check whether stdout or stderr is connected to a terminal and query some terminal properties.

The addError API is inherited from StreamSink and calling it will result in an unhandled asynchronous error unless there is an error handler on done.

Methods

add(List<int> data) → void
Adds byte data to the target consumer, ignoring encoding. [...]
inherited
addError(Object error, [StackTrace? stackTrace]) → void
Passes the error to the target consumer as an error event. [...]
inherited
addStream(Stream<List<int>> stream) Future
Adds all elements of the given stream. [...]
inherited
close() Future
Close the target consumer. [...]
inherited
flush() Future
Returns a Future that completes once all buffered data is accepted by the underlying StreamConsumer. [...]
inherited
noSuchMethod(Invocation invocation) → dynamic
Invoked when a non-existent method or property is accessed. [...]
inherited
toString() String
A string representation of this object. [...]
inherited
write(Object? object) → void
Converts object to a String by invoking Object.toString and adds the encoding of the result to the target consumer. [...]
inherited
writeAll(Iterable objects, [String sep = ""]) → void

inherited
writeCharCode(int charCode) → void
Writes the character of charCode. [...]
inherited
writeln([Object? object = ""]) → void
