hello. If anybody has a minute, if I initialized a buffered reader like this...
BufferedReader rd = new BufferedReader(new FileReader(file));
does the rd.close() still leave the FileReader stream out there...potentially causing memory problems if the code runs in many iterations? thank you.

By convention, close() does the right thing -- i.e., it calls close() on any "nested" streams. All the input and output streams (as well as readers and writers) that are part of the Java standard library behave this way.

And if they don't they're broken, because FilterInputStream etc all mention that subclasses must close the underlying stream etc as well.
