      try {
         sr = new StringReader(s);
         
         // create new buffered reader
         br = new BufferedReader(sr);

         // reads and prints BufferedReader
         System.out.println((char)br.read());
         System.out.println((char)br.read());
         
         // mark invoked at this position
         br.mark(0);
         System.out.println("mark() invoked");
         System.out.println((char)br.read());
         System.out.println((char)br.read());
         
         // reset() repositioned the stream to the mark
         br.reset();
         System.out.println("reset() invoked");
         System.out.println((char)br.read());
         System.out.println((char)br.read());
         
      } catch (Exception e) {
         
         // exception occurred.
         e.printStackTrace();
      } finally {

         // releases any system resources associated with the stream
         if(sr!=null)
            sr.close();
         if(br!=null)
            br.close();
