      char[] ch = {'A', 'B', 'C', 'D', 'E'};
      try{
         
         // create new character array reader
         car = new CharArrayReader(ch);
         
         int value = 0;
         
         // read till the end of the stream
         while((value=car.read())!=-1)
         {
            // convert integer to char
            char c = (char)value;
            
            // print characters
            System.out.print(c + "; ");
            
            // skip single character
            long l = car.skip(1);
            System.out.println("Characters Skipped : "+l);
         }
      }catch(IOException e){
         
         // if I/O error occurs
         e.printStackTrace();
      }finally{
         
         // releases any system resources associated with the stream
         if(car!=null)
            car.close();
      }
   }
}

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

A; Characters Skipped : 1
C; Characters Skipped : 1
E; Characters Skipped : 0
