workbook.SaveAs only saves to stream


how do I save a workbook to disk in a console app?

If I use  the Syncfusion.XlsIO.Wpf package, workbook.SaveAs allows to save to disk by providing a path but if I use either  Syncfusion.XlsIO.NET  or Syncfusion.XlsIO.Net.Core all I'm offered is to save to a stream.

I can probably save the stream to disk by myself but it seems quite cumbersome. Why is there such a difference between these packages ?

I'm using the latest version ( ) of all packages.

We suggest you to use the Syncfusion.XlsIO.Wpf package in WPF applications. So, XlsIO can directly access the local file system and save the document. But, Syncfusion.XlsIO.NET and Syncfusion.XlsIO.NET.Core are portable packages that can be used in web and cross-platform applications where we cannot directly access the file system. For that, we have provided only support for saving the document as a stream. However, using.NET and.NET Core packages, you can save the document to the local file system by creating a file stream as shown below. 

FileStream stream = new FileStream("Output.xlsx", FileMode.Create, FileAccess.ReadWrite);
