Java IO: FilterReader

Last update: 2014-06-23

The FilterReader is a base class for implementing your own filtering readers. Basically it just overrides all methods in Reader.

Like with FilterInputStream, I see no sensible purpose for this class. I cannot see that this class actually adds or changes any behaviour in Reader except that it takes a Reader in its constructor. If you choose to extend this class you might as well extend the Reader class directly, and avoid the extra class in the hierarchy.
