Describe the new page here.
A class representing a stream object. Stream objects in PDF look something like this:

10 0 obj
<<
/ Length 11 0 R
>>
stream
[... stream data here ...]
endstream
endobj

Two important things to note about stream objects: First item is a stream dictionary. In this instance, the only element in the stream dictionary defines the length of the stream in bytes via an indirect reference ( see PdfReference? ). Second is the actual stream data surrounded by 'stream' and 'endstream' tags. Finally, the stream object ends like any other page object, with 'endobj'.
