Removes all of the geometry from this Area and restores it to an empty area.

Reset the stream. The reset method of PushbackReader always throws an exception.Overrides: reset in class FilterReader Throws: IOException - Always, since reset is not supported

- Method in class java.io.ByteArrayOutputStream 
public void reset ()
Resets the count field of this byte array output stream to zero, so that all currently accumulated output in the ouput stream is discarded. The output stream can be used again, reusing the already allocated buffer space.See Also:  ByteArrayInputStream.count
- Method in class java.io.LineNumberInputStream 
public void reset () throws IOException 
Deprecated.  Repositions this stream to the position at the time the method was last called on this input stream. Repositions this stream to the position at the time the mark method was last called on this input stream. The reset method of LineNumberInputStream resets the line number to be the line number at the time the mark method was called, and then calls the reset method of the underlying input stream. Stream marks are intended to be used in situations where you need to read ahead a little to see what's in the stream. Often this is most easily done by invoking some general parser. If the stream is of the type handled by the parser, it just chugs along happily. If the stream is not of that type, the parser should toss an exception when it fails, which, if it happens within readlimit bytes, allows the outer code to reset the stream and try another parser.Overrides: reset in class FilterInputStream Throws: IOException - if an I/O error occurs.See Also:  FilterInputStream.in , mark(int)

- Method in class java.io.Reader 
public void reset () throws IOException 
Reset the stream. If the stream has been marked, then attempt to reposition it at the mark. If the stream has not been marked, then attempt to reset it in some way appropriate to the particular stream, for example by repositioning it to its starting point. Not all character-input streams support the reset() operation, and some support reset() without supporting mark().Throws: IOException - If the stream has not been marked, or if the mark has been invalidated, or if the stream does not support reset(), or if some other I/O error occurs
- Method in class java.io.InputStream 
public void reset () throws IOException 
Repositions this stream to the position at the time the mark method was last called on this input stream. The general contract of reset is: The method reset for class InputStream does nothing and always throws an IOException.Throws: IOException - if this stream has not been marked or if the mark has been invalidated.See Also:  mark(int) , IOException
- Method in class java.io.FilterInputStream 
public void reset () throws IOException 
Repositions this stream to the position at the time the mark method was last called on this input stream. This method simply performs in.reset(). Stream marks are intended to be used in situations where you need to read ahead a little to see what's in the stream. Often this is most easily done by invoking some general parser. If the stream is of the type handled by the parse, it just chugs along happily. If the stream is not of that type, the parser should toss an exception when it fails. If this happens within readlimit bytes, it allows the outer code to reset the stream and try another parser.Overrides: reset in class InputStream Throws: IOException - if the stream has not been marked or if the mark has been invalidated.See Also:  in , mark(int)
- Method in class java.io.ObjectOutputStream 
public void reset () throws IOException 
Reset will disregard the state of any objects already written to the stream. The state is reset to be the same as a new ObjectOutputStream. The current point in the stream is marked as reset so the corresponding ObjectInputStream will be reset at the same point. Objects previously written to the stream will not be refered to as already being in the stream. They will be written to the stream again.
- Method in class java.io.ByteArrayInputStream 
public void reset ()
Resets the buffer to the marked position. The marked position is the beginning unless another position was marked. The value of pos is set to 0.Overrides: reset in class InputStream Tags copied from class: InputStream  Throws: IOException - if this stream has not been marked or if the mark has been invalidated.See Also:  InputStream.mark(int) , IOException
- Method in class java.io.BufferedInputStream 
public void reset () throws IOException 
See the general contract of the reset method of InputStream. If markpos is -1 (no mark has been set or the mark has been invalidated), an IOException is thrown. Otherwise, pos is set equal to markpos.Overrides: reset in class FilterInputStream Throws: IOException - if this stream has not been marked or if the mark has been invalidated.See Also:  mark(int)
- Method in class java.io.FilterReader 
public void reset () throws IOException 
Reset the stream.Overrides: reset in class Reader Throws: IOException - If an I/O error occurs
