How to remove characters/lines from the beginning of an InputStream

Hi,
I have a program which receives several InputStreams. From each of these streams I have to remove 2 lines from the beginning. After the lines are removed, all the streams are combined to one with SequenceInputStream and read in one chunk. Is there an easy/simple way of doing this?
One option I thought would be to read the char by char until 2 end of line chars have been detected and then read the rest of the data to a buffer. And the create a ByteArrayInputStream out of this buffer. Problem with this approach is, that the amount of data can be large, so putting all the data in to memory might cause problems.
Another option is to use BufferredInputStream and use the readline() method twice to get rid of the lines that are not needed. After this I would write the data to some output stream, which is then converted back to input stream. Propably would work, but sound too much of work for a simple thing like this. There has to be better way.
To make it simple, what I need is a method that looks like the following, or something similar
*  Removes n number of lines from the beginning of a InputStream.
*  @param is InputStream where the lines are removed
*  @param numberOfLines int value to indicate how many lines whould be removed
*  @return InputStream where lines have been removed.
public InputStream removeLines(InputStream is, numberOfLines);Thanks.

Here's the code, feel free to use it. Comments are also welcome.
public InputStream removeLinesFromTheBeginning(InputStream is, int numberOfLines) throws IOException
          char c = 'c';
          int i = 0;
          for(int n = 0 ; n < numberOfLines ; n++)
               do
                    c = (char)is.read();
                    System.out.print(c);
                    if(c == (char)-1)     // end of stream reached before any newline characters were found.
                         return null;
                    i++;
               while(c != '\n');
               System.out.println();
               System.out.println("Characters removed:" + i);
               System.out.println("n: " + n);
               i = 0;
          return is;

    Yup, you guys pointed me in the right direction.
    I changed my adjustmentListener to the following:
    JScrollBar scrollBar = (JScrollBar) e.getSource();
    int endLoc = document.getLength();
    try {
        Rectangle end = outputArea.modelToView(endLoc);
        if (end != null) {
            int n = scrollBar.getValue() + scrollBar.getVisibleAmount();
            boolean locked = (end.y >= n && n <= (end.y + end.height));
    } catch (BadLocationException ex) {
    }By comparing scrollbar position with the visible rectangle of the end of the document, I can now easily tell if the user has moved the tracker back or not.
    To go to the next step of automatically pausing scrolling whenever the user is moving the slider back, I also had to disable the automatic scrolling performed by DefaultCaret. Because there was no way to tell if the user was scrolling or if the output was adjusting from the adjustmentListener, I also had to flag whenever I was autoscrolling.
    The end result is a JTextPane that can be appended to at all, and locked by the user by using the slider. If new data arrives, the window is not scrolled, and any text selection the user has is not cleared. Perfect!

    either this way we can do this
    1)
    DocumentBuilderFactory factory = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();
    <b> factory.setIgnoringElementContentWhitespace(true); </b>
    DocumentBuilder db = factory.newDocumentBuilder();
    or
    2)
    java.io.StringWriter sw = new java.io.StringWriter();
    StreamResult sr = new StreamResult(sw);
    t.transform(new DOMSource(doc), sr);
    String xml1 = sw.toString().trim();
    <b> xml1=xml1.replaceAll("\\s",""); </b>
    System.out.println(xml1.trim());

  • HT2905 How to remove duplicate songs from the iPhone when the duplicates are not listed in the iTunes library on the computer.

    How can I remove duplicate songs from the iPhone4. The duplicates are not listed in the computer iTunes library.

    The simplest thing may be to back-up and then restore the iPhone. If you don't fancy that then remove all media that is currently synced to it, then double check and manually remove any media that remains on the device, before reselecting your sync options.
    If you've been manually managing the device and your library doesn't contain copies of all your media then see Recover your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device.

    Hi,
    will this work for you.
    SET BLANK LINES OFF.
    These statements allow you to specify whether you want to output blank lines or not. Use SET BLANK LINES ON to output blank lines or SET BLANK LINES OFF to suppress them.

  • How to remove -ve sign from the deduction wagetype in payslip

    Hi Experts,
    Plz tell me how i can remove the -ve sign from the deduction column in
    the Payslip.
    Regards
    TS

    Hi ,
    Do you just have to show the sign different in payslip and the RT .
    Coz what it seems is that the RT is having a negative WT , so in order to make it positive you goto
    PE51 , enter the form you are using and change the cumulation id for deduction wage type .
    Hope this helps.
    Regards,
