io.BufferedWriter class methods

Bufferreader class writes text to character-output stream, buffering characters.Thus, providing efficient writing of single array, character and strings. A buffer size needs to be specified, if not it takes Default value. 
An output is immediately set to the underlying character or byte stream by the Writer.
Class Declaration 

public class BufferedWriter
   extends Writer

Constructors 

  • BufferedWriter(Writer out): Creates a buffered character-output stream that uses a default-sized output buffer.
  • BufferedWriter(Writer out, int size): Creates a new buffered character-output stream that uses an output buffer of the given size.

Methods: 

  • write() : java.io.BufferedWriter.write(int arg) writes a single character that is specified by an integer argument. 
    Syntax : 
public void write(int arg)
Parameters : 
arg : integer that specifies the character to write          
Return :
Doesn't return any value.
  • Implementation :

JAVA




//Java program illustrating use of write(int arg) method
 
import java.io.*;
public class NewClass
{
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        //initializing FileWriter
        FileWriter geek_file;
        try
        {
            geek_file = new FileWriter("ABC.txt");
             
            // Initializing BufferedWriter
            BufferedWriter geekwrite = new BufferedWriter(geek_file);
            System.out.println("Buffered Writer start writing :)");
             
            // Use of write() method to write the value in 'ABC' file
            // Printing E
            geekwrite.write(69);
             
            // Printing 1
            geekwrite.write(49);
 
            // Closing BufferWriter to end operation
            geekwrite.close();
            System.out.println("Written successfully");
        }
        catch (IOException except)
        {
            except.printStackTrace();
        }
 
    }
}

  • Note : In the given output, you can’t see it’s action on file. Run this code on any compiler in your device. It creates a new file ‘ABC’ and write “E 1 ” in it. 
Output : 
Buffered Writer start writing :)
Written successfully
  • write() : java.io.BufferedWriter.write(String arg, int offset, int length) writes String in the file according to its arguments as mentioned in the Java Code. 
    Syntax : 
public void write(String arg, int offset, int length)
Parameters : 
arg : String to be written
offset : From where to start reading the string
length : No. of characters of the string to write          
Return :
Doesn't return any value.
  • Implementation :

JAVA




//Java program illustrating use of write(String arg, int offset, int length) method
 
import java.io.*;
public class NewClass
{
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        //Initializing a FileWriter
        FileWriter geek_file;
        try
        {
            geek_file = new FileWriter("ABC.txt");
         
            // Initializing a BufferedWriter
            BufferedWriter geekwrite = new BufferedWriter(geek_file);
            System.out.println("Buffered Writer start writing :)");
            String arg = "Hello Geeks";
            int offset = 6;
            geekwrite.write(arg,offset,arg.length()-offset);
 
            // Closing Buffer
            geekwrite.close();
            System.out.println("Written successfully");
        }
        catch (IOException except)
        {
            except.printStackTrace();
        }
 
 
    }
}

  • Note : In the given output, you can’t see it’s action on file. Run this code on any compiler in your device. It creates a new file ‘ABC’ and write “Geeks” in it.Here, 
arg = Hello Geeks
offset = 6
length = arg.length So, when we minus offset : 6, it will write 'Geeks' only in the file.
  • Output: 
Buffered Writer start writing :)

  • newLine() : java.io.BufferedWriter.newLine() breaks/separates line. 
    Syntax : 
public void newLine()       
Return :
Doesn't return any value.
  • Implementation :

JAVA




//Java program explaining use of newLine() method
 
import java.io.*;
public class NewClass
{
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        //initializing FileWriter
        FileWriter geek_file;
        try
        {
            geek_file = new FileWriter("ABC.txt");
             
            // Initializing BufferedWriter
            BufferedWriter geekwrite = new BufferedWriter(geek_file);
            System.out.println("Buffered Writer start writing :)");
             
            // Use of write() method to write the value in 'ABC' file
            // Printing "GEEKS"
            geekwrite.write("GEEKS");
             
            // For next line
            geekwrite.newLine();
             
            // Printing "FOR"
            geekwrite.write("FOR");
             
             // For next line
            geekwrite.newLine();
             
            // Printing "GEEKS"
            geekwrite.write("FOR");
 
            // Closing BufferWriter to end operation
            geekwrite.close();
            System.out.println("Written successfully");
        }
        catch (IOException except)
        {
            except.printStackTrace();
        }
 
    }
}

  • Note :In the given output, you can’t see it’s action on file. Run this code on any compiler in your device. It creates a new file ‘ABC’ and write 
    | GEEKS | 
    | FOR | 
    | GEEKS | Here, newLine() method breaks line after GEEKS and FOR is written in next line 
    Output : 
Buffered Writer start writing :)
Written successfully
  • flush() : java.io.BufferedWriter.flush() flushes character from write buffer. 
    Syntax : 
public void flush()    
Return :
Doesn't return any value.
  • close() : java.io.BufferedWriter.close() flushes character from write buffer and then close it. 
    Syntax : 
public void close()    
Return :
Doesn't return any value.
  • Implementation of flush(), close() method :

JAVA




//Java program illustrating use of flush(), close() method
 
import java.io.*; //BufferedWriter, FileWriter, IOException
public class NewClass
{
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        FileWriter geek_file; //initializing FileWriter
        try
        {
            geek_file = new FileWriter("ABC.txt");
            // Initializing BufferedWriter
            BufferedWriter geekwrite = new BufferedWriter(geek_file);
            System.out.println("Buffered Writer start writing :)");
            // Use of write() method to write the value in 'ABC' file
 
            geekwrite.write(69); // Printing E
            geekwrite.newLine(); // For next line
            geekwrite.write(49); // Printing 1
 
            // flush() method : flushing the stream
            geekwrite.flush();
            // close() method : closing BufferWriter to end operation
            geekwrite.close();
            System.out.println("Written successfully");
        }
        catch (IOException except)
        {
            except.printStackTrace();
        }
 
    }
}

  • Note : You can’t see it’s action on file. Run this code on any compiler in your device.It creates a new file ‘ABC’ and write 
    | E | 
    | 1 | 
    in it.Here, flush() method flushes the stream and close() method closes the writer. 
Output : 
Buffered Writer start writing :)
