LongStream distinct() in Java with examples

LongStream distinct() is a method in java.util.stream.LongStream. 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 :

LongStream distinct()

Where, LongStream is a sequence of 
primitive long-valued elements.

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

    {
  
        // creating a stream
        LongStream stream = LongStream.of(2L, 3L,
                              3L, 5L, 6L, 6L, 8L);
  
        // Displaying only distinct elements
        // using the distinct() method
        stream.distinct().forEach(System.out::println);
