Subject [jira] Commented: (IO-181) LineIterator should implement Iterable
Date Tue, 17 Nov 2009 06:01:43 GMT


Noah Levitt commented on IO-181:

I strongly agree with the bug reporter, LineIterator should implement Iterable. Then you can
write nice code like this:

for (String line: new LineIterator(reader)) {
    // ...

Maybe I'm missing something, but if this is the implementation of iterator(), how can it be

    public Iterator<String> iterator() {
        return this;
