CharArrayReader ready() method in Java with Examples

The ready() method of CharArrayReader Class in Java is used to check whether this CharArrayReader is ready to be read or not. It returns a boolean which states if the reader is ready.

Syntax:

public void ready()

Parameters: This method does not accepts any parameters



Return Value: This method returns a boolean value which tells if this CharArrayReader is ready to be read or not. It return true if it is ready. Else it returns false.

Exception: This method throws IOException if some error occurs while input-output.
