Java IO: FilterReader
FilterReader is a base class for implementing your own filtering readers. Basically
it just overrides all methods in
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
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.
