Below program illustrates the use of Java.util.TreeSet.clone() method:




// Java code to illustrate addAll()
import java.io.*;
import java.util.TreeSet;
  
public class TreeSetDemo {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        // Creating an empty TreeSet
        TreeSet<String> tree = new TreeSet<String>();
  
        // Use add() method to add elements into the Set
        tree.add("Welcome");
        tree.add("To");
        tree.add("Geeks");
        tree.add("4");
        tree.add("Geeks");
        tree.add("TreeSet");
  
        // Displaying the TreeSet
        System.out.println("TreeSet: " + tree);
  
        // Creating a new cloned set
        TreeSet cloned_set = new TreeSet();
  
        // Cloning the set using clone() method
        cloned_set = (TreeSet)tree.clone();
  
        // Displaying the cloned_set
        System.out.println("The cloned TreeSet: " + cloned_set);
    }
}
