Class<> has no field writeByte (or any other method in there)

I don’t even understand how it can not find it since I randomly also tried
new HttpBase(“”).addHeader(“foo”,“bar”); with no problem.

Can you provide a complete sample? With compilation settings

With a capital O in Output it looks like you are trying to use writeByte as a static function.
You need an actual object of type Output (or one of it’s child classes, like e.g. a FileOutput obtained via File.write(filename)) to use any non static function.

Output has no constructor, so I assumed making it an object wouldn’t help. However, declaring a public static var out:Output; works. I wasn’t aware of that. Thanks a lot @ablum.

Sorry for the noob question :sweat_smile:

Other question, I am aware that writeByte isn’t implemented but how will it, and its brothers, be meant to be used as they return nothing nor modify any variable? Is it because it’s incomplete? I do not quite understand…

I guess what you are after is Sys.stdout().writeByte(...)

Output is basically an abstract base class (if you’re familiar with C# vernacular), meaning it is not meant to be instantiated, only derived from.

There are other IO classes that derive from it that have constructors/static factory functions that create instances and have implementations for its methods, like and (and several other NativeOutput types for different targets)

I looked around a bit and found out that what I was after was in fact As I need an array of bytes.
