Subject [jira] Commented: (IO-203) Add skipFully() method for InputStreams
Date Sun, 07 Mar 2010 21:12:27 GMT


Sebb commented on IO-203:

Turns out that the basic skip(long) implementations already allow for looping until read()
returns -1, so they will skip as much as possible.

So only the skipFully() methods currently make sense, added.

Add skipFully() methods for InputStream and Reader

> The skip() method is not guaranteed to skip the requested number of bytes, even if there
is more data available. This is particularly true of Buffered input streams.
> It would be useful to have a skip() method that keeps skipping until the required number
of bytes have been read, or EOF was reached, in which case it should throw an Exception.
