CharArrayReader Methods

Method Description
int read() Reads a single character.
int read(char[ ] cb) Reads up to cb.length characters from this stream into an array of characters.
int read(char[ ] cb, int off, int len) Reads up to len characters from this stream into an array of characters.
int read(CharBuffer cb) Attempts to read characters into the specified character buffer.
boolean  markSupported() Tells whether this stream supports the mark() operation, which it does.
void        mark(int readAheadLimit) Sets the current marked position in the stream. The parameter gives the maximum limit of bytes that can be read before the marked position becomes invalid.
void        reset() Resets the stream to the most recent mark, or to the beginning if it has never been marked.
