(SQL Server) Chaining Asynchronous Streams

The asynchronous functionality of Chilkat, combined with streams, can offer some interesting possibilities. This example demonstrates how to create two streams, call them streamA and streamB, where streamA feeds into streamB and both streams run in background threads. The examples demonstrates copying a file in this way:

sourceFile --> streamA --> streamB --> outputFile

This may seem pointless, but the possibilities become interesting when intermediate streams can perform tasks such as encryption or compression, or when a source or sink is a socket, a TLS connection, an SSH tunnel, etc. Or perhaps if a stream becomes the source for the file in an HTTP upload, or perhaps it is the source or sink for files in FTP, SFTP, etc. This is where Chilkat's Async standards in combination with Chilkat Stream can begin to offer powerful and simple-to-implement possibilities.
