Scala example source code file (Splitter.scala)

This example Scala source code file (Splitter.scala) is included in my "Source Code Warehouse" project. The intent of this project is to help you more easily find Scala source code examples by using tags.

All credit for the original source code belongs to; I'm just trying to make examples easier to find. (For my Scala work, see my Scala examples and tutorials.)

/** A splitter (or a split iterator) can be split into more splitters that traverse over
 *  disjoint subsets of elements.
 *  @tparam T    type of the elements this splitter traverses
 *  @since 2.9
 *  @author Aleksandar Prokopec
trait Splitter[+T] extends Iterator[T] {

  /** Splits the iterator into a sequence of disjunct views.
   *  Returns a sequence of split iterators, each iterating over some subset of the
   *  elements in the collection. These subsets are disjoint and should be approximately
   *  equal in size. These subsets are not empty, unless the iterator is empty in which
   *  case this method returns a sequence with a single empty iterator. If the splitter has
   *  more than two elements, this method will return two or more splitters.
   *  Implementors are advised to keep this partition relatively small - two splitters are
   *  already enough when partitioning the collection, although there may be a few more.
   *  '''Note:''' this method actually invalidates the current splitter.
   *  @return a sequence of disjunct iterators of the collection
  def split: Seq[Splitter[T]]
   *  '''Note:''' splitters in this sequence may actually be empty and it can contain a splitter
   *  which iterates over the same elements as the original splitter AS LONG AS calling `split`
   *  a finite number of times on the resulting splitters eventually returns a nontrivial partition.
   *  Note that the docs contract above yields implementations which are a subset of implementations
   *  defined by this fineprint.
   *  The rationale behind this is best given by the following example:
   *  try splitting an iterator over a linear hash table.
