Class BoundedIterator<E>

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class BoundedIterator<E>
    extends Object
    implements Iterator<E>
    Decorates another iterator to return elements in a specific range.

    The decorated iterator is bounded in the range [offset, offset+max). The offset corresponds to the position of the first element to be returned from the decorated iterator, and max is the maximum number of elements to be returned at most.

    In case an offset parameter other than 0 is provided, the decorated iterator is immediately advanced to this position, skipping all elements before that position.

      • BoundedIterator

        public BoundedIterator​(Iterator<? extends E> iterator,
                               long offset,
                               long max)
        Decorates the specified iterator to return at most the given number of elements, skipping all elements until the iterator reaches the position at offset.

        The iterator is immediately advanced until it reaches the position at offset, incurring O(n) time.

        iterator - the iterator to be decorated
        offset - the index of the first element of the decorated iterator to return
        max - the maximum number of elements of the decorated iterator to return
        NullPointerException - if iterator is null
        IllegalArgumentException - if either offset or max is negative

      • hasNext

        public boolean hasNext()
        Specified by:
        hasNext in interface Iterator<E>
      • next

        public E next()
        Specified by:
        next in interface Iterator<E>
      • remove

        public void remove()

        In case an offset other than 0 was specified, the underlying iterator will be advanced to this position upon creation. A call to remove() will still result in an IllegalStateException if no explicit call to next() has been made prior to calling remove().

        Specified by:
        remove in interface Iterator<E>
