public void close()Description copied from interface:
SequenceIteratorClose the iterator. This indicates to the supplier of the data that the client does not require any more items to be delivered by the iterator. This may enable the supplier to release resources. After calling close(), no further calls on the iterator should be made; if further calls are made, the effect of such calls is undefined.
For example, the iterator returned by the unparsed-text-lines() function has a close() method that causes the underlying input stream to be closed, whether or not the file has been read to completion.
Closing an iterator is important when the data is being "pushed" in another thread. Closing the iterator terminates that thread and means that it needs to do no additional work. Indeed, failing to close the iterator may cause the push thread to hang waiting for the buffer to be emptied.
