public class CharArrayWriter
extends Writer

This class implements a character buffer that can be used as an Writer. The buffer automatically grows when data is written to the stream. The data can be retrieved using toCharArray() and toString().

Since:
JDK1.1

Field Summary
protected  char[] buf
          The buffer where data is stored.
protected  int count
          The number of chars in the buffer.

Constructor Summary
CharArrayWriter()
          Creates a new CharArrayWriter.
CharArrayWriter(int initialSize)
          Creates a new CharArrayWriter with the specified initial size.
 
Method Summary
 void close()
          Close the stream.
 void flush()
          Flush the stream.
 void reset()
          Resets the buffer so that you can use it again without throwing away the already allocated buffer.
 int size()
          Returns the current size of the buffer.
 char[] toCharArray()
          Returns a copy of the input data.
 String toString()
          Converts input data to a string.
 void write(char[] c, int off, int len)

Method Detail

write

public void write(int c)
Writes a character to the buffer.

Overrides:
write in class Writer
Parameters:
c - int specifying a character to be written.

write

public void write(char[] c,
                  int off,
                  int len)
Writes characters to the buffer.

Specified by:
write in class Writer
Parameters:
c - the data to be written
off - the start offset in the data
len - the number of chars that are written

write

public void write(String str,
                  int off,
                  int len)
Write a portion of a string to the buffer.

Overrides:
write in class Writer
Parameters:

off - Offset from which to start reading characters
len - Number of characters to be written

writeTo

public void writeTo(Writer out)
             throws IOException
Writes the contents of the buffer to another character stream.

Parameters:
out - the output stream to write to
Throws:
IOException - If an I/O error occurs.

reset

public void reset()
