StringBufferInputStream

public class StringBufferInputStream extends InputStream

This class was deprecated.
This class does not properly convert characters into bytes. As of JDK 1.1, the preferred way to create a stream from a string is via the StringReader class.

This class allows an application to create an input stream in which the bytes read are supplied by the contents of a string. Applications can also read bytes from a byte array by using a ByteArrayInputStream.

Only the low eight bits of each character in the string are used by this class.

Field Summary

protected String buffer The string from which bytes are read.
protected int count The number of valid characters in the input stream buffer.
protected int pos The index of the next character to read from the input stream buffer.

Public Constructor Summary

StringBufferInputStream(String s)
Creates a string input stream to read data from the specified string.

Public Method Summary

synchronized int
available()
Returns the number of bytes that can be read from the input stream without blocking.
synchronized int
read()
Reads the next byte of data from this input stream.
synchronized int
read(byte[] b, int off, int len)
Reads up to len bytes of data from this input stream into an array of bytes.
synchronized void
reset()
Resets the input stream to begin reading from the first character of this input stream's underlying buffer.
synchronized long
skip(long n)
Skips n bytes of input from this input stream.
