The following code implements the FileFilter interface and only accepts the readable files.


import java.io.File;
import java.io.FileFilter;

public class Main {

  public static void main(String[] args) {
    File[] files = new File("c:/").listFiles(new MyFileFilter());
    for(File file: files){
      System.out.println(file);
    }
  }
}

class MyFileFilter implements FileFilter{

  public boolean accept(File pathname) {
    if(pathname.canRead()){
      return true;
    }else{
      return false;
    }
  }
  
}

The output:
