22.28 The Class

An EOFException is thrown to indicate that an input operation has encountered end of file. Note that some Java input operations react to end of file by returning a distinguished value (such as -1) rather than by throwing an exception.

public class EOFException extends IOException {
	public EOFException();
	public EOFException(String s);

22.28.1 public EOFException()

This constructor initializes a newly created EOFException with null as its error message string.

22.28.2 public EOFException(String s)

This constructor initializes a newly created EOFException by saving a reference to the error message string s for later retrieval by the getMessage method (§20.22.3).
