import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;
  
class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        try {
            // Initializing a StringReader
            // and PushbackReader
            String s = "GeeksForGeeks";
  
            StringReader stringReader
                = new StringReader(s);
            PushbackReader pushbackReader
                = new PushbackReader(stringReader);
  
            // reset the stream position
            pushbackReader.reset();
  
            // Close the stream using reset()
            pushbackReader.close();
            System.out.println("Stream Closed.");
        }
        catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println(e);

            StringReader stringReader
                = new StringReader(s);
            PushbackReader pushbackReader
                = new PushbackReader(stringReader);
