Hello haneefnb

It allows you to skip over a certain number of characters specified as a long value passed like skip(100) will skip over 100 characters so that when you call read() next you get the 101st character instead of the 1st from where you currently are in the buffered reader.

Hopefully that makes sense.

br.skip(100);
