BufferedReader markSupported() method in Java with Examples
  • Last Updated : 05 Jun, 2020

The markSupported() method of BufferedReader class in Java is used to verify whether the stream supports the mark() method or not. It returns the boolean value true if the stream supports mark() otherwise it returns false.

Syntax:

public boolean markSupported() 

Overrides: It overrides the markSupported() method of the Reader class.

Parameters: This method does not accept any parameter.

Return value: This method returns a boolean value indicating the supportability of the mark() method by the stream.



Exceptions: This method does not throw any exception.

Below programs illustrate markSupported() method in BufferedReader class in IO package:

Program 1: Assume the existence of the file “c:/demo.txt”.




// Java program to illustrate
// BufferedReader markSupported() method
  
import java.io.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Read the stream 'demo.txt'
        // for containing text "GEEKS"
        FileReader fileReader
            = new FileReader(
                "c:/demo.txt");
  
        // Convert fileReader to
        // bufferedReader
        BufferedReader buffReader
            = new BufferedReader(
                fileReader);
  
        // Returns true if stream
        // supports mark()
        boolean bool
            = buffReader.markSupported();
  
        System.out.println(
            "Support for mark() : "
            + bool);
    }
}
Output:
Supports for mark() : true

Program 2: Assume the existence of the file “c:/demo.txt”.




// Java program to illustrate
// BufferedReader markSupported() method
  
import java.io.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Read the stream 'demo.txt'
        // for containing text "GEEKS"
        FileReader fileReader
            = new FileReader(
                "c:/demo.txt");
  
        // Convert fileReader to
        // bufferedReader
        BufferedReader buffReader
            = new BufferedReader(
                fileReader);
  
        // Returns true if stream
        // supports mark()
        boolean bool
            = buffReader.markSupported();
  
        System.out.println(
            "Support for mark() : "
            + bool);
    }
}
Output:
Supports for mark() : false
