Fields

protected char[] buf

Added in API level 1

The buffer for characters.

protected int count

Added in API level 1

The ending index of the buffer.

protected int markedPos

Added in API level 1

The current mark position.

protected int pos

Added in API level 1

The current buffer position.

Public Constructors

public CharArrayReader (char[] buf)

Added in API level 1

Constructs a CharArrayReader on the char array buf. The size of the reader is set to the length of the buffer and the object to to read from is set to buf.

Parameters
buf char: the char array from which to read.

public CharArrayReader (char[] buf, int offset, int length)

Added in API level 1

Constructs a CharArrayReader on the char array buf. The size of the reader is set to length and the start position from which to read the buffer is set to offset.

Parameters
buf char: the char array from which to read.
offset int: the index of the first character in buf to read.
length int: the number of characters that can be read from buf.
Throws
IllegalArgumentException if offset < 0 or length < 0, or if offset is greater than the size of buf .

Public Methods

public void close ()

Added in API level 1

This method closes this CharArrayReader. Once it is closed, you can no longer read from it. Only the first invocation of this method has any effect.

public void mark (int readLimit)

Added in API level 1

Sets a mark position in this reader. The parameter readLimit is ignored for CharArrayReaders. Calling reset() will reposition the reader back to the marked position provided the mark has not been invalidated.

Parameters
readLimit int: ignored for CharArrayReaders.
Throws
IOException if this reader is closed.

public boolean markSupported ()

Added in API level 1

Indicates whether this reader supports the mark() and reset() methods.

Returns
boolean true for CharArrayReader.

See also:

public int read ()

Added in API level 1

Reads a single character from this reader and returns it as an integer with the two higher-order bytes set to 0. Returns -1 if no more characters are available from this reader.

Returns
int the character read as an int or -1 if the end of the reader has been reached.
Throws
IOException if this reader is closed.

public int read (char[] buffer, int offset, int count)

Added in API level 1

Reads up to count characters from this CharArrayReader and stores them at offset in the character array buffer. Returns the number of characters actually read or -1 if the end of reader was encountered.

Parameters
buffer char
offset int
count int
Returns
int
Throws
IndexOutOfBoundsException if offset < 0 || count < 0 || offset + count > buffer.length.
IOException if this reader is closed.

public boolean ready ()

Added in API level 1

Indicates whether this reader is ready to be read without blocking. Returns true if the next read will not block. Returns false if this reader may or may not block when read is called. The implementation in CharArrayReader always returns true even when it has been closed.

Returns
boolean true if this reader will not block when read is called, false if unknown or blocking will occur.
Throws
IOException if this reader is closed.

public void reset ()

Added in API level 1

Resets this reader's position to the last mark() location. Invocations of read() and skip() will occur from this new location. If this reader has not been marked, it is reset to the beginning of the string.

Throws
IOException if this reader is closed.

public long skip (long charCount)

Added in API level 1

Skips charCount characters in this reader. Subsequent calls to read will not return these characters unless reset is used. This method does nothing and returns 0 if charCount <= 0.

Parameters
charCount long
Returns
long the number of characters actually skipped.
Throws
IOException if this reader is closed.
