Class SkipShieldingInputStream

All Implemented Interfaces:
Closeable, AutoCloseable

No longer used.
A wrapper that overwrites skip(long) and delegates to instead.

Some implementations of InputStream implement InputStream.skip(long) in a way that throws an exception if the stream is not seekable - is known to behave that way. For such a stream it is impossible to invoke skip at all and you have to read from the stream (and discard the data read) instead. Skipping is potentially much faster than reading so we do want to invoke skip when possible. We provide this class so you can wrap your own InputStream in it if you encounter problems with skip throwing an exception.
