- Enumerators can be used to read the data in the collection, but they cannot be used to modify the underlying collection.
- Initially, the enumerator is positioned before the first element in the collection.
- This method is an O(1) operation.
- An enumerator remains valid as long as the collection remains unchanged. If changes are made to the collection, such as adding, modifying, or deleting elements, the enumerator is irrecoverably invalidated and its behavior is undefined.
