LongStream skip() in Java
  • Last Updated : 06 Dec, 2018

LongStream skip(long n) returns a stream consisting of the remaining elements of this stream after discarding the first n elements of the stream. If this stream contains fewer than n elements then an empty stream will be returned.

Note : LongStream skip() is a stateful intermediate operation i.e, it may incorporate state from previously seen elements when processing new elements.

Syntax :

LongStream skip(long n)

Parameter : LongStream is a sequence of primitive long-valued elements. This is the long primitive specialization of Stream. n is the number of leading elements to skip.

Return Value : The function returns the new stream after discarding first n elements.



Exception : The function throws IllegalArgumentException if n is negative.

Example 1 :




// Java code for LongStream skip() function
import java.util.*;
import java.util.stream.LongStream;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Driver code
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Creating an LongStream of numbers [5, 6, .. 11]
        LongStream stream = LongStream.range(5L, 12L);
  
        // Using skip() to skip first 4 values in range
        // and displaying the rest of elements
        stream.skip(4).forEach(System.out::println);
    }
}


Example 2 :




// Java code for LongStream skip() function
import java.util.*;
import java.util.stream.LongStream;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Driver code
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Creating an LongStream [5, 6, .. 11]
        LongStream stream = LongStream.range(5L, 12L);
  
        // Using parallel skip() to skip first
        // 4 values in range and displaying the
        // rest of elements
        stream.parallel().skip(4).forEach(System.out::println);
    }
}
