Detailed Description

This class defines an abstract interface for line iterators.

Classes inheriting this class can be used to iterate lines from various sources.

Member Function Documentation

◆ getLine()

abstract string Qore::AbstractLineIterator::getLine ( )
pure virtual

Returns the current line in the data or throws an INVALID-ITERATOR exception if the iterator is invalid.

Returns
the current line in the data
Example:
while (i.next()) {
printf("+ %y\n", i.getLine());
}
Exceptions
INVALID-ITERATORthe iterator is not pointing at a valid element

Implemented in Qore::FileLineIterator, Qore::DataLineIterator, and Qore::InputStreamLineIterator.

◆ getValue()

abstract string Qore::AbstractLineIterator::getValue ( )
pure virtual

Returns the current line in the data or throws an INVALID-ITERATOR exception if the iterator is invalid.

This method calls AbstractLineIterator::getLine() internally.

Returns
the current line in the data
Example:
while (i.next()) {
printf("+ %y\n", i.getValue());
}
Exceptions
INVALID-ITERATORthe iterator is not pointing at a valid element
See also
AbstractLineIterator::getLine()

Implements Qore::AbstractIterator.

Implemented in Qore::FileLineIterator, Qore::InputStreamLineIterator, and Qore::DataLineIterator.

◆ index()

abstract int Qore::AbstractLineIterator::index ( )
pure virtual

Returns the current iterator line number (the first line is line 1) or 0 if not pointing at a valid element.

Returns
the current iterator line number (the first line is line 1) or 0 if not pointing at a valid element
Example:
while (i.next()) {
printf("+ %d: %y\n", i.index(), i.getLine());
}

Implemented in Qore::FileLineIterator, Qore::InputStreamLineIterator, and Qore::DataLineIterator.

◆ next()

abstract bool Qore::AbstractLineIterator::next ( )
pure virtual

Moves the current position to the next line; returns False if there are no more lines to read.

This method will return True again after it returns False once if data is not empty, otherwise it will always return False. The iterator object should not be used after this method returns False.

Returns
False if there are no more lines in the source (in which case the iterator object is invalid and should not be used); True if successful (meaning that the iterator object is valid)
Example:
while (i.next()) {
printf("line: %y\n", i.getLine());
}

Implements Qore::AbstractIterator.

Implemented in Qore::FileLineIterator, Qore::InputStreamLineIterator, and Qore::DataLineIterator.

◆ valid()

abstract bool Qore::AbstractLineIterator::valid ( )
pure virtual

Returns True if the iterator is currently pointing at a valid element, False if not.

Returns
True if the iterator is currently pointing at a valid element, False if not
Example:
if (i.valid())
printf("current value: %y\n", i.getValue());

Implements Qore::AbstractIterator.

Implemented in Qore::FileLineIterator, Qore::DataLineIterator, and Qore::InputStreamLineIterator.
