Stream flatMapToLong() in Java with examples

Stream flatMapToLong(Function mapper) applies given mapper function to each element of a stream and returns a LongStream. Stream flatMapToLong(Function mapper) is an intermediate operation. Intermediate operations are invoked on a Stream instance and after they finish their processing, they give a Stream instance as output.

Note : Each mapped stream is closed after its contents have been placed into this stream. If a mapped stream is null, an empty stream is used, instead.
Syntax :

LongStream flatMapToLong(Function<? super T, ? extends LongStream> mapper)

Where, LongStream is a sequence of primitive
long-valued elements and T is the type 
of stream elements. mapper is a stateless function 
which is applied to each element and the function
returns the new stream.

Example 1 : flatMapToLong() with operation of parsing string to long.

                            forEach(System.out::println);
    }

Output :

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: "5.36"

Note : A Java NumberFormatException usually occurs when you try to do something like converting a String to a numeric value, like an int, float, double, long etc.
