      StringReader sr = new StringReader(s);

      try {
         // read the first five chars
         for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++) {
            char c = (char) sr.read();
            System.out.print("" + c);
         }

         // change the line
         System.out.println();

         // close the stream
         sr.close();

         //try to access the reader after it is closed
         try {
            sr.ready();
         } catch (Exception ex) {
            // catch the exception and print a message if reader is closed
            System.out.println("Reader is closed.");
         }
      } catch (IOException ex) {
         ex.printStackTrace();
