Syntax:

public void close()

Parameters: This method do not accepts any parameter.

Return Value: This method do not returns any value. It just closes the Stream.

Below methods illustrates the working of close() method:



Program 1:




// Java program to demonstrate
// PrintWriter close() method
  
import java.io.*;
  
class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // The string to be written in the Writer
        String str = "GeeksForGeeks";
  
        try {
  
            // Create a PrintWriter instance
            PrintWriter writer
                = new PrintWriter(System.out);
  
            // Write the above string to this writer
            // This will put the string in the stream
            // till it is printed on the console
            writer.write(str);
  
            // Now close the stream
            // using close() method
            writer.close();
        }
        catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println(e);
        }
    }
}
Output:
GeeksForGeeks

            PrintWriter writer
                = new PrintWriter(System.out);
  
            // Write the char to this writer
            // This will put the char in the stream
            // till it is printed on the console
            writer.write(65);
