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
@Deprecated public class StringBufferInputStream extends InputStream
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
Only the low eight bits of each character in the string are used by this class.
protected String buffer
The string from which bytes are read.
protected int pos
The index of the next character to read from the input stream buffer.
protected int count
The number of valid characters in the input stream buffer.
public StringBufferInputStream(String s)
Creates a string input stream to read data from the specified string.
s- the underlying input buffer.
public int read()
Reads the next byte of data from this input stream. The value byte is returned as an
int in the range
255. If no byte is available because the end of the stream has been reached, the value
-1 is returned.
read method of
StringBufferInputStream cannot block. It returns the low eight bits of the next character in this input stream's buffer.
-1if the end of the stream is reached.
public int read(byte b, int off, int len)
Reads up to
len bytes of data from this input stream into an array of bytes.
read method of
StringBufferInputStream cannot block. It copies the low eight bits from the characters in this input stream's buffer into the byte array argument.
b- the buffer into which the data is read.
off- the start offset of the data.
len- the maximum number of bytes read.
-1if there is no more data because the end of the stream has been reached.
public long skip(long n)
n bytes of input from this input stream. Fewer bytes might be skipped if the end of the input stream is reached.
n- the number of bytes to be skipped.
public int available()
Returns the number of bytes that can be read from the input stream without blocking.
count - pos, which is the number of bytes remaining to be read from the input buffer.
public void reset()
Resets the input stream to begin reading from the first character of this input stream's underlying buffer.
