public class: PipedWriter [javadoc | source]
java.lang.Object
   java.io.Writer
      java.io.PipedWriter

All Implemented Interfaces:
    Flushable, Closeable, Appendable

Piped character-output streams.
Fields inherited from java.io.Writer:
lock
Constructor:
 public PipedWriter() 
 public PipedWriter(PipedReader snk) throws IOException 
    Creates a piped writer connected to the specified piped reader. Data characters written to this stream will then be available as input from snk.
    Parameters:
    snk - The piped reader to connect to.
    Throws:
    IOException - if an I/O error occurs.
    exception: IOException - if an I/O error occurs.

close,   connect,   flush,   write,   write
Methods from java.io.Writer:

clone,   equals,   finalize,   getClass,   hashCode,   notify,   notifyAll,   toString,   wait,   wait,   wait
Method from java.io.PipedWriter Detail:
 public  void close() throws IOException 
    Closes this piped output stream and releases any system resources associated with this stream. This stream may no longer be used for writing characters.
 public synchronized  void connect(PipedReader snk) throws IOException 
    Connects this piped writer to a receiver. If this object is already connected to some other piped reader, an IOException is thrown.

    If snk is an unconnected piped reader and src is an unconnected piped writer, they may be connected by either the call:

    src.connect(snk)
    or the call:
    snk.connect(src)
    The two calls have the same effect.
 public synchronized  void flush() throws IOException 
    Flushes this output stream and forces any buffered output characters to be written out. This will notify any readers that characters are waiting in the pipe.
 public  void write(int c) throws IOException 
    Writes the specified char to the piped output stream. If a thread was reading data characters from the connected piped input stream, but the thread is no longer alive, then an IOException is thrown.

    Implements the write method of Writer.

 public  void write(char[] cbuf,
    int off,
    int len) throws IOException 
    Writes len characters from the specified character array starting at offset off to this piped output stream. This method blocks until all the characters are written to the output stream. If a thread was reading data characters from the connected piped input stream, but the thread is no longer alive, then an IOException is thrown.
