Class: TMatrix, TIntMatrix, TMat3D
Declaration: procedure WriteToXMLStream (OutStream: TStream; CreateHeader: boolean; DataID: string);

The method WriteToXMLStream writes the data of the matrix to the stream  OutStream using XML syntax. If the parameter CreateHeader is TRUE a minimum XML header is generated. CreateHeader should be set to  FALSE  if the data is to be appended to an existing XML file. The parameter DataID holds a unique user defined identifier which is stored as the attribute "id " of the <matrix> tag. If the parameter DataID is empty, the value of the property DataID is used instead of an empty string.

Hint 1: For a sample XML file, see the description of the method SaveAsXMLFile.

Hint 2: WriteToXMLStream stores only non-zero values in the stream. This makes the XML stream considerably shorter for matrices containing many zero elements.
