IntStream distinct() in Java with examples

IntStream distinct() is a method in java.util.stream.IntStream. This method returns a stream consisting of the distinct elements. This is a stateful intermediate operation i.e, it may incorporate state from previously seen elements when processing new elements.

Syntax :

IntStream distinct()

Where, IntStream is a sequence of 
primitive int-valued elements.

Below given are some examples to understand the function in a better way.
Example 1 : Printing distinct elements of Integer stream.

class GFG {
      
    // Driver code
    public static void main(String[] args) {
              
    // creating a stream     
    IntStream stream = IntStream.of(2, 3, 3, 5, 6, 6, 8);
      
    // Displaying only distinct elements
    // using the distinct() method
    stream.distinct().forEach(System.out::println);
