   // By using skip() methos is to skip
   // the number of characters
   long skip = car_stm.skip(2);
   System.out.println("car_stm.skip(2): " + skip);

   System.out.println("After skip(): ");
   // Read after skipping
   while ((val = car_stm.read()) != -1) {
    char ch = (char) val;
    System.out.print(ch + " ");
   }
  } catch (Exception ex) {
   System.out.print(ex.toString());

   // with the stream after closing
   // the stream
