Re: Back/front methods for Iterable (and reverse iterators)


Bart makes a good point that not all Iterables will have an ordered
structure (ex: socket input/output streams).
I think it would make more sense having front() and back() methods in List
that returns Iterators that either traverse
the list head to tail or vice versa.
