Class PyIterator

  extended by org.python.core.PyObject
      extended by org.python.core.PyIterator
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Iterable<Object>
Direct Known Subclasses:
ArrayCData.ArrayIter, cStringIO.StringIO, PyCallIter, PyEnumerate, PyFastSequenceIter, PyGenerator, PyReader, PyReversedIterator, PySequenceIter, PyTeeIterator

public abstract class PyIterator
extends PyObject
implements Iterable<Object>

An abstract helper class useful when implementing an iterator object. This implementation supply a correct __iter__() and a next() method based on the __iternext__() implementation. The __iternext__() method must be supplied by the subclass. If the implementation raises a StopIteration exception, it should be stored in stopException so the correct exception can be thrown to preserve the line numbers in the traceback.

public PyIterator(PyType subType)
Method Detail


public abstract PyObject __iternext__()
Description copied from class: PyObject
Return the next element of the sequence that this is an iterator for. Returns null when the end of the sequence is reached.

__iternext__ in class PyObject


public PyObject __iter__()
Description copied from class: PyObject
Return an iterator that is used to iterate the element of this sequence. From version 2.2, this method is the primary protocol for looping over sequences.

If a PyObject subclass should support iteration based in the __finditem__() method, it must supply an implementation of __iter__() like this:

 public PyObject __iter__() {
     return new PySequenceIter(this);
When iterating over a python sequence from java code, it should be done with code like this:
 for (PyObject item : seq.asIterable()) {
     // Do somting with item

__iter__ in class PyObject


public PyObject next()
The exposed next method. Note that exposed derivable subclasses of PyIterator should override next to call doNext(custom___iternext__), as __iternext__ is overridden by the Derived classes.
