First paragraph says that PrintStream and PrintWriter "...ALSO include constructors that automatically wrap the print stream around a low-level file stream class, such as FileOutputStream and FileWriter."

This is wrong. PrintStream and PrintWriter do NOT have specific constructors for these classes. For this you must use the abstract class ones (OutputStream and Writer) which had already been mentioned on page 946.

Confirmed and added to the errata. I also checked whether the Java 17 book has the same error. It does not because that paragraph does not appear at all
