         fr = new FilterReader(r) {
         };
         
         // read and print characters one by one
         System.out.println("Char : "+(char)fr.read());
         System.out.println("Char : "+(char)fr.read());
         System.out.println("Char : "+(char)fr.read());
            
         // mark is set on the filter reader
         fr.mark(0);
         System.out.println("Char : "+(char)fr.read());
         System.out.println("reset() invoked");
            
         // reset is called
         fr.reset();
            
         // read and print characters
         System.out.println("char : "+(char)fr.read());
         System.out.println("char : "+(char)fr.read());
         
      } catch(Exception e) {
         
         // if any I/O error occurs
         e.printStackTrace();
      } finally {
         
         // releases system resources associated with this stream
         if(r!=null)
            r.close();
         if(fr!=null)
            fr.close();
      }
   }
}

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

Char : A
Char : B
Char : C
Char : D
reset() invoked
char : D
char : E
