An input stream for reading from a file.
Files are always opened in binary mode, a text mode with CR-LF translation is not supported. Thus, the file is always opened as if the std::ios::binary flag was specified. Use an InputLineEndingConverter if you require CR-LF translation.
On Windows platforms, if POCO_WIN32_UTF8 is #define'd, UTF-8 encoded Unicode paths are correctly handled.

The std::ios::in flag is always set, regardless of the actual value specified for mode.
Throws a FileNotFoundException (or a similar exception) if the file does not exist or is not accessible for other reasons.
Destroys the stream.
