Closes format reader, and detaches it from previously opened file (or other media).

Public Overridable Sub Close
public virtual void Close()


You should always use this method to detach from opened file (or other media). As soon as you call Open(String) method, file will be locked until you close the reader.

If you close the reader which has not been opened, the method does nothing. So you need not do any checks to ensure if reader is opened to close it.
