Load document from stream

There might be cases when the document is presented only as a stream (without a copy on the local disk). To avoid the overhead of saving documents to the disk, GroupDocs.Parser enables to extract data from streams directly.

The following example shows how to load the document from the stream:

// Create an instance of Parser class with the stream
using (Parser parser = new Parser(stream))
{
    // Extract a text into the reader
    using (TextReader reader = parser.GetText())
    {
        // Print a text from the document
        // If text extraction isn't supported, a reader is null
        Console.WriteLine(reader == null ? "Text extraction isn't supported" : reader.ReadToEnd());
    }
}
