ROBinReaderWriter

Overview

The ROBinReaderWriter class is used to serialize and deserialize any kind of data into the bytes buffer. It provides a lot of symmetrical read/write methods for each datatype, so you can easily write and read any objects to and from NSData. This class is used by the ROBinMessage to read/write data into the binary message. In most cases you do not need to deal with this class directly.
