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.


// Java program to demonstrate
// the above method
import java.text.*;
import java.util.*;
public class StringCharacterIteratorDemo {
    public static void main(String[] args)
        StringCharacterIterator sci1
            = new StringCharacterIterator(
        System.out.println("StringCharacterIterator 1: "
                           + sci1);
        StringCharacterIterator sci2
            = new StringCharacterIterator(
                "Geeks for Geeks");
        System.out.println("StringCharacterIterator 2: "
                           + sci2);
        StringCharacterIterator sci3
            = (StringCharacterIterator)sci1
        System.out.println("StringCharacterIterator 3: "
                           + sci3);
        System.out.println("Comparing DFS 1 and DFS 2: "
                           + sci1.equals(sci2));
        System.out.println("Comparing DFS 2 and DFS 3: "
                           + sci2.equals(sci3));
        System.out.println("Comparing DFS 1 and DFS 3: "
                           + sci1.equals(sci3));
StringCharacterIterator 1: java.text.StringCharacterIterator@bd43b778
StringCharacterIterator 2: java.text.StringCharacterIterator@ac5740a8
StringCharacterIterator 3: java.text.StringCharacterIterator@bd43b778
Comparing DFS 1 and DFS 2: false
Comparing DFS 2 and DFS 3: false
