Closes this stream and releases any system resources associated with it.

Inherited methods

Public methods

close

added in API level 1
public abstract void close ()

Closes this stream and releases any system resources associated with it. If the stream is already closed then invoking this method has no effect.

As noted in AutoCloseable.close(), cases where the close may fail require careful attention. It is strongly advised to relinquish the underlying resources and to internally mark the Closeable as closed, prior to throwing the IOException.

Throws
IOException if an I/O error occurs
