Java Platform 1.2
Class EOFException


public class EOFException
extends IOException

Signals that an end of file or end of stream has been reached unexpectedly during input.

This exception is mainly used by data input streams, which generally expect a binary file in a specific format, and for which an end of stream is an unusual condition. Most other input streams return a special value on end of stream.

Note that some input operations react to end-of-file by returning a distinguished value (such as -1) rather than by throwing an exception.
