||OutBuffer provides a way to build up an array of bytes out of raw data. It is useful for things like preparing an array of bytes to write out to a file. OutBuffer's byte order is the format native to the computer. To control the byte order (endianness), use a class derived from OutBuffer. OutBuffer's internal buffer is allocated with the GC. Pointers stored into the buffer are scanned by the GC, but you have to ensure proper alignment, e.g. by using alignSize((void*).sizeof).|
