Scala Iterator toList() method with example

The toList() method belongs to the concrete value members of the AbstractIterable class and is defined in the TraversableOnce and GenTraversableOnce classes. It converts a traversable or iterator to a list but it doesn’t terminates for infinite-sized collections.

  • Method Definition:
    def toList: List[A]
    
  • Return Type:
    It returns a list from the stated traversable or an iterator.>/li>

Example :




// Scala program of toList()
// method
  
// Creating object
object GfG
  
    // Main method
    def main(args:Array[String])
    {
      
        // Declaring an iterator
        val iter = Iterator(8, 9, 10, 11)
          
        // Applying toList method
        val result = iter.toList
              
        // Displays output
        println(result)
  
    }
}
Output:
List(8, 9, 10, 11)

Therefore, a List is generated from an iterator.
Example :






// Scala program of toList()
// method
  
// Creating object
object GfG
  
    // Main method
    def main(args:Array[String])
    {
      
        // Declaring an empty-iterator
        val iter = Iterator()
          
        // Applying toList method
        val result = iter.toList
              
        // Displays output
        println(result)
  
    }
}
Output:
List()

Therefore, an empty List is generated from an empty-iterator.
