Constructor Detail

AppendingStringBuffer

public AppendingStringBuffer()
Constructs a string buffer with no characters in it and an initial capacity of 16 characters.


AppendingStringBuffer

public AppendingStringBuffer(int length)
Constructs a string buffer with no characters in it and an initial capacity specified by the length argument.

Parameters:
length - the initial capacity.
Throws:
java.lang.NegativeArraySizeException - if the length argument is less than 0.

AppendingStringBuffer

public AppendingStringBuffer(java.lang.CharSequence str)
Constructs a string buffer so that it represents the same sequence of characters as the string argument; in other words, the initial contents of the string buffer is a copy of the argument string. The initial capacity of the string buffer is 16 plus the length of the string argument.

Parameters:
str - the initial contents of the buffer.
Throws:
java.lang.NullPointerException - if str is null
Method Detail

length

public int length()
Returns the length (character count) of this string buffer.

Specified by:
length in interface java.lang.CharSequence
Returns:
the length of the sequence of characters currently represented by this string buffer.

capacity

public int capacity()
Returns the current capacity of the String buffer. The capacity is the amount of storage available for newly inserted characters; beyond which an allocation will occur.

Returns:
the current capacity of this string buffer.

ensureCapacity

public void ensureCapacity(int minimumCapacity)
Ensures that the capacity of the buffer is at least equal to the specified minimum. If the current capacity of this string buffer is less than the argument, then a new internal buffer is allocated with greater capacity. The new capacity is the larger of: If the minimumCapacity argument is nonpositive, this method takes no action and simply returns.

Parameters:
minimumCapacity - the minimum desired capacity.

setLength

public void setLength(int newLength)
Sets the length of this String buffer. This string buffer is altered to represent a new character sequence whose length is specified by the argument. For every nonnegative index k less than newLength, the character at index k in the new character sequence is the same as the character at index k in the old sequence if k is less than the length of the old character sequence; otherwise, it is the null character '\u0000'. In other words, if the newLength argument is less than the current length of the string buffer, the string buffer is truncated to contain exactly the number of characters given by the newLength argument.

If the newLength argument is greater than or equal to the current length, sufficient null characters ('\u0000') are appended to the string buffer so that length becomes the newLength argument.

The newLength argument must be greater than or equal to 0.

Parameters:
newLength - the new length of the buffer.
Throws:
java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException - if the newLength argument is negative.
See Also:
StringBuffer.length()

charAt

public char charAt(int index)
The specified character of the sequence currently represented by the string buffer, as indicated by the index argument, is returned. The first character of a string buffer is at index 0, the next at index 1, and so on, for array indexing.

The index argument must be greater than or equal to 0, and less than the length of this string buffer.

Specified by:
charAt in interface java.lang.CharSequence
Parameters:
index - the index of the desired character.
Returns:
the character at the specified index of this string buffer.
Throws:
java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException - if index is negative or greater than or equal to length().
See Also:
StringBuffer.length()

getChars

public void getChars(int srcBegin,
                     int srcEnd,
                     char[] dst,
                     int dstBegin)
Characters are copied from this string buffer into the destination character array dst. The first character to be copied is at index srcBegin; the last character to be copied is at index srcEnd-1. The total number of characters to be copied is srcEnd-srcBegin. The characters are copied into the subarray of dst starting at index dstBegin and ending at index:

 dstbegin + (srcEnd - srcBegin) - 1
 

Parameters:
srcBegin - start copying at this offset in the string buffer.
srcEnd - stop copying at this offset in the string buffer.
dst - the array to copy the data into.
dstBegin - offset into dst.
Throws:
java.lang.NullPointerException - if dst is null.
java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException - if any of the following is true:
  • srcBegin is negative
  • dstBegin is negative
  • the srcBegin argument is greater than the srcEnd argument.
  • srcEnd is greater than this.length(), the current length of this string buffer.
  • dstBegin+srcEnd-srcBegin is greater than dst.length

setCharAt

public void setCharAt(int index,
                      char ch)
The character at the specified index of this string buffer is set to ch. The string buffer is altered to represent a new character sequence that is identical to the old character sequence, except that it contains the character ch at position index.

The index argument must be greater than or equal to 0, and less than the length of this string buffer.

Parameters:
index - the index of the character to modify.
ch - the new character.
Throws:
java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException - if index is negative or greater than or equal to length().

StringBuffer.length()

append

public AppendingStringBuffer append(java.lang.Object obj)
Appends the string representation of the Object argument to this string buffer.

The argument is converted to a string as if by the method String.valueOf, and the characters of that string are then appended to this string buffer.

Parameters:
obj - an Object.
Returns:
a reference to this AppendingStringBuffer object.
See Also:
String.valueOf(java.lang.Object), StringBuffer.append(java.lang.String)

append

public AppendingStringBuffer append(java.lang.String str)

The second argument is converted to a string as if by the method String.valueOf, and the characters of that string are then inserted into this string buffer at the indicated offset.

The offset argument must be greater than or equal to 0, and less than or equal to the length of this string buffer.

Parameters:
offset - the offset.
b - a boolean.
Returns:
a reference to this AppendingStringBuffer object.
Throws:
java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException - if the offset is invalid.

startsWith

public boolean startsWith(java.lang.CharSequence prefix,
                          int toffset)
Tests if this AppendingStringBuffer starts with the specified prefix beginning a specified index.

Parameters:
prefix - the prefix.
toffset - where to begin looking in the string.
Returns:
true if the character sequence represented by the argument is a prefix of the substring of this object starting at index toffset; false otherwise. The result is false if toffset is negative or greater than the length of this String object; otherwise the result is the same as the result of the expression
 this.subString(toffset).startsWith(prefix)
 

startsWith

public boolean startsWith(java.lang.CharSequence prefix)
Tests if this AppendingStringBuffer starts with the specified prefix.

Parameters:
prefix - the prefix.
Returns:
true if the character sequence represented by the argument is a prefix of the character sequence represented by this AppendingStringBuffer; false otherwise. Note also that true will be returned if the argument is an empty string or is equal to this AppendingStringBuffer object as determined by the equals(Object) method.

endsWith

public boolean endsWith(java.lang.CharSequence suffix)
Tests if this AppendingStringBuffer ends with the specified suffix.

Parameters:
suffix - the suffix.
Returns:
true if the character sequence represented by the argument is a suffix of the character sequence represented by this AppendingStringBuffer; false otherwise. Note that the result will be true if the argument is the empty string or is equal to this AppendingStringBuffer object as determined by the equals(Object) method.

toString

public java.lang.String toString()
Converts to a string representing the data in this AppendingStringBuffer. A new String object is allocated and initialized to contain the character sequence currently represented by this string buffer. This String is then returned. Subsequent changes to the string buffer do not affect the contents of the String.

Implementation advice: This method can be coded so as to create a new String object without allocating new memory to hold a copy of the character sequence. Instead, the string can share the memory used by the string buffer. Any subsequent operation that alters the content or capacity of the string buffer must then make a copy of the internal buffer at that time. This strategy is effective for reducing the amount of memory allocated by a string concatenation operation when it is implemented using a string buffer.

Specified by:
toString in interface java.lang.CharSequence
Overrides:
toString in class java.lang.Object
Returns:
a string representation of the string buffer.

getValue

public final char[] getValue()
This method returns the internal char array. So it is not

Returns:
The internal char array

equals

public boolean equals(java.lang.Object anObject)
Compares this AppendingStringBuffer to the specified object. The result is true if and only if the argument is not null and is a AppendingStringBuffer object or another charsequence object! that represents the same sequence of characters as this object.

Overrides:
equals in class java.lang.Object
Parameters:
anObject - the object to compare this AppendingStringBuffer against.
Returns:
true if the AppendingStringBufferare equal; false otherwise.

hashCode

public int hashCode()
Returns a hash code for this AppendingStringBuffer. The hash code for a AppendingStringBuffer object is computed as
    s[0]*31ˆ(n-1) + s[1]*31ˆ(n-2) + ... + s[n-1]
 
using int arithmetic, where s[i] is the ith character of the AppendingStringBuffer, n is the length of the AppendingStringBuffer, and ^ indicates exponentiation. (The hash value of the empty AppendingStringBuffer is zero.)

Overrides:
hashCode in class java.lang.Object
Returns:
a hash code value for this object.

clear

public void clear()
Clears the buffer contents, but leaves the allocated size intact
