// BufferedWriter flush() method
  
import java.io.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
        throws IOException
    {
  
        // Create the string Writer
        StringWriter stringWriter
            = new StringWriter();
  
        // Convert stringWriter to
        // bufferedWriter
        BufferedWriter buffWriter
            = new BufferedWriter(
                stringWriter);
  
        // Write "GEEKS" to buffer writer
        buffWriter.write(
            "GEEKSFORGEEKS", 0, 5);
  
        // Flush the buffer writer
        buffWriter.flush();
  
        System.out.println(
            stringWriter.getBuffer());
    }
}
Output:
GEEKS

Program 2:




// Java program to illustrate
// BufferedWriter flush() method
  
import java.io.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
        throws IOException
    {
        // Create the string Writer
        StringWriter stringWriter
            = new StringWriter();
  
        // Convert stringWriter to
        // bufferedWriter
        BufferedWriter buffWriter
            = new BufferedWriter(
                stringWriter);
  
        // Write "GEEKS" to buffered writer
        buffWriter.write(
            "GEEKSFORGEEKS", 0, 5);
  
        // Flush the buffered writer
        buffWriter.flush();
  
        System.out.println(
            stringWriter.getBuffer());
  
        // Write "GEEKSFORGEEKS"
        // to buffered writer
        buffWriter.write(
            "GEEKSFORGEEKS", 5, 8);
  
        // Flush the buffered writer
