trait
Iterator[+A]
extends
AnyRefhasNext
method for checking
if there is a next element available, and a next
method
which returns the next element and discards it from the iterator.Method Summary  
def

++
[B >: A](that : Iterator[B]) : Iterator[B]
Returns a new iterator that first yields the elements of this
iterator followed by the elements provided by iterator
that . 
def

/:
[B](z : B)(op : (B, A) => B) : B
Similar to
foldLeft but can be used as
an operator with the order of iterator and zero arguments reversed.
That is, z /: xs is the same as xs foldLeft z . 
def

:\
[B](z : B)(op : (A, B) => B) : B
An alias for
foldRight .
That is, xs :\ z is the same as xs foldRight z . 
def

addString
(buf : StringBuilder, start : String, sep : String, end : String) : StringBuilder
Write all elements of this string into given string builder.

def

append
[B >: A](that : Iterator[B]) : Iterator[B]
Returns a new iterator that first yields the elements of this
iterator followed by the elements provided by iterator
that . 
def

buffered
: BufferedIterator[A]
Returns a buffered iterator from this iterator.

def

contains
(elem : Any) : Boolean
Tests if the given value
elem is a member of this iterator. 
def

copyToArray
[B >: A](xs : Array[B], start : Int) : Unit
Fills the given array
xs with the elements of
this sequence starting at position start . 
def

copyToBuffer
[B >: A](dest : Buffer[B]) : Unit
Copy all elements to a buffer

def

counted
: CountedIterator[A]
Returns a counted iterator from this iterator.

def

drop
(n : Int) : Iterator[A]
Removes the first
n elements from this iterator. 
def

dropWhile
(p : (A) => Boolean) : Iterator[A]
Skips longest sequence of elements of this iterator which satisfy given
predicate
p , and returns an iterator of the remaining elements. 
def

duplicate
: (Iterator[A], Iterator[A])
Creates two new iterators that both iterate over the same elements
than this iterator (in the same order).

def

exists
(p : (A) => Boolean) : Boolean
Apply a predicate
p to all elements of this
iterable object and return true, iff there is at least one
element for which p yields true . 
def

filter
(p : (A) => Boolean) : Iterator[A]
Returns an iterator over all the elements of this iterator that
satisfy the predicate
p . The order of the elements
is preserved. 
def

find
(p : (A) => Boolean) : Option[A]
Find and return the first element of the iterable object satisfying a
predicate, if any.

def

flatMap
[B](f : (A) => Iterator[B]) : Iterator[B]
Applies the given function
f to each element of
this iterator, then concatenates the results. 
def

foldLeft
[B](z : B)(op : (B, A) => B) : B
Combines the elements of this iterator together using the binary
operator
op , from left to right, and starting with
the value z . 
def

foldRight
[B](z : B)(op : (A, B) => B) : B
Combines the elements of this iterator together using the binary
operator
op , from right to left, and starting with
the value z . 
def

forall
(p : (A) => Boolean) : Boolean
Apply a predicate
p to all elements of this
iterable object and return true iff the predicate yields
true for all elements. 
def

foreach
(f : (A) => Unit) : Unit
Apply a function
f to all elements of this
iterable object. 
abstract def

hasNext
: Boolean
Does this iterator provide another element?

def

map
[B](f : (A) => B) : Iterator[B]
Returns a new iterator that maps all elements of this iterator
to new elements using function
f . 
def

mkString
(sep : String) : String
Returns a string representation of this iterable object. The string
representations of elements (w.r.t. the method
toString() )
are separated by the string sep . 
def

mkString
(start : String, sep : String, end : String) : String
Returns a string representation of the elements in this iterator. The resulting string
begins with the string
start and is finished by the string
end . Inside, the string representations of elements (w.r.t.
the method toString() ) are separated by the string
sep .
Ex: 
abstract def

next
: A
Returns the next element.

def

readInto [B >: A](xs : Array[B], start : Int) : Unit 
def

readInto [B >: A](xs : Array[B]) : Unit 
def

readInto
[B >: A](xs : Array[B], start : Int, sz : Int) : Unit
Fills the given array
xs with the elements of
this sequence starting at position start . Like copyToArray ,
but designed to accomodate IO stream operations. 
def

reduceLeft
[B >: A](op : (B, B) => B) : B
Combines the elements of this iterator together using the binary
operator
op , from left to right 
def

reduceRight
[B >: A](op : (B, B) => B) : B
Combines the elements of this iterator together using the binary
operator
op , from right to left 
def

take
(n : Int) : Iterator[A]
Returns a new iterator that iterates only over the first
n
elements. 
def

takeWhile
(p : (A) => Boolean) : Iterator[A]
Returns an iterator over the longest prefix of this iterator such that
all elements of the result satisfy the predicate
p .
The order of the elements is preserved. 
def

toList
: List[A]
Transform this iterator into a list of all elements.

override def

toString : String 
def

zip
[B](that : Iterator[B]) : Iterator[(A, B)]
Return an iterator formed from this iterator and the specified iterator
that by associating each element of the former with
the element at the same position in the latter.
If one of the two iterators is longer than the other, its remaining elements are ignored. 
def

zipWithIndex
: Iterator[(A, Int)]
Return an iterator that pairs each element of this iterator
with its index, counting from 0.
