Constructor Detail

PipedReader

public PipedReader(PipedWriter src)
            throws IOException
Creates a PipedReader so that it is connected to the piped writer src. Data written to src will then be available as input from this stream.
Parameters:
src - the stream to connect to.
Throws:
IOException - if an I/O error occurs.

PipedReader

public PipedReader()
Creates a PipedReader so that it is not yet connected. It must be connected to a PipedWriter before being used.
See Also:
connect(java.io.PipedWriter), PipedWriter.connect(java.io.PipedReader)
Method Detail

connect

public void connect(PipedWriter src)
             throws IOException
Causes this piped reader to be connected to the piped writer src. If this object is already connected to some other piped writer, an IOException is thrown.

If src is an unconnected piped writer and snk is an unconnected piped reader, they may be connected by either the call:

snk.connect(src) 

or the call:

src.connect(snk) 

The two calls have the same effect.

Parameters:
src - The piped writer to connect to.
Throws:
IOException - if an I/O error occurs.

read

public int read()
         throws IOException
Reads the next character of data from this piped stream. If no character is available because the end of the stream has been reached, the value -1 is returned. This method blocks until input data is available, the end of the stream is detected, or an exception is thrown. If a thread was providing data characters to the connected piped writer, but the thread is no longer alive, then an IOException is thrown.
Overrides:
read in class Reader
Returns:
the next character of data, or -1 if the end of the stream is reached.
Throws:
IOException - if the pipe is broken.

read

public int read(char[] cbuf,
                int off,
                int len)
         throws IOException
Reads up to len characters of data from this piped stream into an array of characters. Less than len characters will be read if the end of the data stream is reached. This method blocks until at least one character of input is available. If a thread was providing data characters to the connected piped output, but the thread is no longer alive, then an IOException is thrown.
Overrides:
read in class Reader
Parameters:
cbuf - the buffer into which the data is read.
off - the start offset of the data.
len - the maximum number of characters read.
Returns:
the total number of characters read into the buffer, or -1 if there is no more data because the end of the stream has been reached.
Throws:
IOException - if an I/O error occurs.

ready

public boolean ready()
              throws IOException
Tell whether this stream is ready to be read. A piped character stream is ready if the circular buffer is not empty.
Overrides:
ready in class Reader
Throws:
IOException - If an I/O error occurs

close

public void close()
           throws IOException
Closes this piped stream and releases any system resources associated with the stream.
Overrides:
close in class Reader
Throws:
IOException - if an I/O error occurs.
