Scala for/yield examples (for-loop and yield examples)

I just found some notes from when I first began working with Scala, and I was working with the yield keyword in for loops. If you haven't worked with something like yield before, it will be helpful to know how it works.

How to iterate (loop) over the elements in a Map in Java 8

If you need to iterate over the elements in a Map in Java 8, this source code shows how to do it:

Java String array examples (with Java 5 for loop syntax)

Java String array FAQ: Can you share some Java array examples, specifically some String array examples, as well as the Java 5 for loop syntax?

Sure. In this tutorial, we'll show how to declare, populate, and iterate through a String array, including the Java 5 for loop syntax. Because creating a String array is just like creating and using any other Java object array, these examples can also work as more generic object array examples.

How to iterate over Scala Lists with foreach and for

Scala List/sequence FAQ: How do I iterate over a Scala List using the foreach method or for loop?

There are a number of ways to iterate over a Scala List using the foreach operator and for comprehension, and I'll show a few of those approaches here.
