public class PrintStream
extends FilterOutputStream

Print values and objects to an output stream, using the platform's default character encoding to convert characters into bytes.

If automatic flushing is enabled at creation time, then the stream will be flushed each time a line is terminated or a newline character is written.

Methods in this class never throw I/O exceptions. Client code may inquire as to whether any errors have occurred by invoking the checkError method.

Note: This class is provided primarily for use in debugging, and for compatibility with existing code; new code should use the PrintWriter class.
