I found many programmers using PrintStream in their codes. I looked for this,but failed to get the clear idea of its significance,Why to use it?

"Unlike other output streams, a PrintStream never throws an IOException and the data is flushed to a file automatically i.e. the flush method is automatically invoked after a byte array is written."

So what's the benefit if flush is automatically invoked?

private PrintStream x = null;

Now what could be the possible reasons if someone declares x like this?

hi friend,

PrintWriter class prints the characters rather than the bytes whereas, PrintStream class prints the characters into bytes. Characters are converted into byte using default character encoding.
