Interface CloseableSpliterator<T>

All Superinterfaces:
AutoCloseable, Spliterator<T>
All Known Implementing Classes:
FilterSpliterator, SpliteratorMapper

public interface CloseableSpliterator<T> extends Spliterator<T>, AutoCloseable
Interface that provides semantics of a Spliterator and AutoCloseable interfaces. This is useful when you have data that can be splitted and may hold resources in the underlying implementation that must be closed.

A spliterator split from this is not closeable. Only the original CloseableSpliterator is required to be closed

Some implementations may close resources automatically when the spliterator is exhausted however this is an implementation detail and all callers should call AutoCloseable.close() method to be sure all resources are freed properly.
