Write a method readTree that accepts a Scanner as a parameter and that replaces the current tree with one constructed from data stored in the Scanner. The format will be the same used in Problem #1 writeTree where a tree has been stored using a pre-order traversal with one line for each node. Each line of input has a code indicating the type of node, followed by the data in the node. The format for each node is a code indicating the type of node (from the table below) followed by the data in the node.

Below the table is a data file stored in the above described format (and being read by a Scanner called input) and the tree referenced by variable tree that a call to tree.readTree(input); would create.

Code NodeType
0 leaf node (no children)
1 branch node with left child only
2 branch node with right child only
3 branch node with left and right children
Input Tree
3 7
1 9
0 5
3 8
2 4
0 9
0 6

You may assume that there is at least one line of input, meaning that the tree will have at least one node. Remember that you are creating a tree based on the information in the file.

Assume that you are adding this method to the IntTree class as defined below:

public class IntTree {
    private IntTreeNode overallRoot;
