Description

The java.io.PrintStream.checkError() method flushes the stream and checks its error state. The internal error state is set to true when the underlying output stream throws an IOException other than InterruptedIOException, and when the setError method is invoked. If an operation on the underlying output stream throws an InterruptedIOException, then the PrintStream converts the exception back into an interrupt by doing:

Declaration

Example

The following example shows the usage of java.io.PrintStream.checkError() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.io.*;

public class PrintStreamDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {
      String s = "Hello World.";

      // create a new PrintStream
      PrintStream ps = new PrintStream(System.out);

      // print a string
      ps.println(s);

      // check for errors and print
      ps.print(ps.checkError());
      ps.flush();
      ps.close();
