The clone() method of Stack class is used to return a shallow copy of this Stack. It just creates a copy of the Stack. The copy will have a reference to a clone of the internal data array but not a reference to the original internal data array.
Parameters: The method does not take any parameter.
Return Value: The method returns an Object which is just the copy of the Stack.
Exception: This method throws CloneNotSupportedException if the object’s class does not support the Cloneable interface.
Below programs illustrate the Java.util.Stack.clone() method:
Stack: [Welcome, To, Geeks, 4, Geeks] The cloned Stack is: [Welcome, To, Geeks, 4, Geeks]
Stack: [10, 15, 30, 20, 5] The cloned Stack is: [10, 15, 30, 20, 5]
