Helper class for doing bitwise writes for a FastBufferWriter. Ensures all bitwise writes end on proper byte alignment so FastBufferWriter doesn't have to be concerned with misaligned writes.
Whether or not the current BitPosition is evenly divisible by 8. I.e. whether or not the BitPosition is at a byte boundary.
Pads the written bit count to byte alignment and commits the write back to the writer
Allows faster serialization by batching bounds checking. When you know you will be writing multiple fields back-to-back and you know the total size, you can call TryBeginWriteBits() once on the total size, and then follow it with calls to WriteBit() or WriteBits().
Bitwise write operations will throw OverflowException in editor and development builds if you go past the point you've marked using TryBeginWriteBits(). In release builds, OverflowException will not be thrown for performance reasons, since the point of using TryBeginWrite is to avoid bounds checking in the following operations in release builds. Instead, attempting to write past the marked position in release builds will write to random memory and cause undefined behavior, likely including instability and crashes.
|System.Int32||bitCount||Number of bits you want to write, in total|
|System.Boolean||True if you can write, false if that would exceed buffer bounds|
Write a single bit to the buffer
|System.Boolean||bit||Value of the bit. True represents 1, False represents 0|
Write bits to stream.
|System.Byte||value||Value to get bits from.|
|System.UInt32||bitCount||Amount of bits to write.|
Write s certain amount of bits to the stream.
|System.UInt64||value||Value to get bits from.|
|System.UInt32||bitCount||Amount of bits to write|
