Below methods illustrates the working of markSupported() method:

Program 1:




// Java program to demonstrate
// Reader markSupported() method
  
import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;
  
class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        try {
  
            String str = "GeeksForGeeks";
  
            // Create a Reader instance
            Reader reader
                = new StringReader(str);
  
            // Check if the Reader is
            // markSupported using markSupported()
            System.out.println("Is Reader markSupported: "
                               + reader.markSupported());
  
            reader.close();
        }
        catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println(e);
        }
    }
}

Output:

Is Reader markSupported: true

Program 2:




// Java program to demonstrate
// Reader markSupported() method
  
import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;
  
class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)

            // Create a Reader instance
            Reader reader
                = new CharArrayReader(str);
  
            // Check if the Reader is
            // markSupported using markSupported()
            System.out.println("Is Reader markSupported: "
                               + reader.markSupported());
  
            reader.close();
