void clear()

Below program illustrate the Java.util.LinkedList.clear() method:

import java.util.LinkedList;
public class LinkedListDemo {
    public static void main(String args[])
        // Creating an empty LinkedList
        LinkedList<String> list = new LinkedList<String>();
        // Using add() method to add elements in the list
        // Displaying the List
        System.out.println("Original LinkedList:" + list);
        // Clearing the list
        // Accessing the List after clearing it
        System.out.println("List after clearing all elements: " + list);
        // Adding elements after clearing the list
        // Displaying the List
        System.out.println("After adding elements to empty list:" + list);
