Yes this is correct. There is no real limit on how many FilteredStreams you can chain together. Each FilteredStream provides some additional behaviour above and beyond what its nested Stream provides. Rob
Hi, this code is valid as Rob pointed out. this code can help if we have formatted input about which we know priorly and it is huge/large in content. so we want buffering while taking input. so we can chain buffered stream to datainput stream. regards maulin.
