public class BufferedReaderDemo {
   
   public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
      InputStream is = null; 
      InputStreamReader isr = null;
      BufferedReader br = null;

      try {
      
         // open input stream test.txt for reading purpose.
         is = new FileInputStream("c:/test.txt");
         
         // create new input stream reader
         isr = new InputStreamReader(is);
         
         // create new buffered reader
         br = new BufferedReader(isr);
      
         boolean bool = false;
         
         // returns true if the stream type supports mark
         bool = br.markSupported();
         
         System.out.println("Buffered reader supports mark : "+bool);
         
      } catch(Exception e) {
         e.printStackTrace();
      } finally {
         
         // releases resources associated with the streams
         if(is!=null)
            is.close();
         if(isr!=null)
            isr.close();
         if(br!=null)
            br.close();
      }
   }
}

Assuming we have a text file c:/test.txt, which has the following content. This file will be used as an input for our example program −

ABCDE

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result −
