Subject [collections] LoopingIterator
Date Fri, 18 Oct 2002 22:45:31 GMT
[Jonathan, I have sent back to commons-dev mailing list which is the
appropriate place for design/code discussions.]

I took a quick look, and I believe that the code in the zip will work.
However, my main concern is why this would be needed. Is there a use case
for an iterator that never ends?

I would also like to see the remove method implemented. It should be
possible.

Stephen
