This method takes a StringCharacterIterator instance and compares it with this StringCharacterIterator and returns a boolean value representing the same.


public boolean equals(Object obj)

Parameter: This method accepts a parameter obj which is the StringCharacterIterator to be checked for equality with this StringCharacterIterator.

Return Value: This method returns an boolean which tells if this StringCharacterIterator is equal to the specified Object.

Exception: This method do not throw any Exception.
