157. Read N Characters Given Read4

The API: int read4(char *buf) reads 4 characters at a time from a file.

The return value is the actual number of characters read. For example, it returns 3 if there is only 3 characters left in the file.

By using the read4 API, implement the function int read(char *buf, int n) that reads n characters from the file.

Note: The read function will only be called once for each test case.

/* The read4 API is defined in the parent class Reader4.
      int read4(char[] buf); */

public class Solution extends Reader4 {
     * @param buf Destination buffer
     * @param n   Maximum number of characters to read
     * @return    The number of characters read
    public int read(char[] buf, int n) {
        int index =0;
        char[] r4 = new char[4];
        while(index < n){
            int c = read4(r4);
            for(int i=0; i<c && index < n; i++){
                buf[index++] = r4[i];
            if(c < 4) break;

        return index;
