The hasDefiniteSize() method is a concrete value member of AbstractMap class. It checks whether the stated traversable collection is having a finite size or not.
  • Method Definition:
    def hasDefiniteSize: Boolean
    
  • Return Type: It returns true if the stated collection has finite size else returns false or if the iterator is empty it returns true otherwise returns false.
Example :
// Scala program of hasDefiniteSize()
// method
  
// Creating object
object GfG
  
    // Main method
    def main(args:Array[String])
    {
      
        // Declaring an empty iterator
        val iter = Iterator()
          
        // Applying hasDefiniteSize method
        val result = iter.hasDefiniteSize
          
        // Displays output
        println(result)
  
    }

                    
Output:
true
Here, the iterator is empty so, the hasDefiniteSize method returns true. Example :
// Scala program of hasDefiniteSize()
// method
  
// Creating object
object GfG
  
    // Main method
    def main(args:Array[String])
    {
      
        // Declaring an iterator
        val iter = Iterator(2, 3, 4, 9, 6)
          
        // Applying hasDefiniteSize method
        val result = iter.hasDefiniteSize
          
        // Displays output
        println(result)
  
    }

                    
Output:
false
Here, the stated iterator is non-empty so, the method hasDefiniteSize returns false.
