Queue<E> class Null safety

A Queue is a collection that can be manipulated at both ends. One can iterate over the elements of a queue through forEach or with an Iterator.

It is generally not allowed to modify the queue (add or remove entries) while an operation on the queue is being performed, for example during a call to forEach. Modifying the queue while it is being iterated will most likely break the iteration. This goes both for using the iterator directly, or for iterating an Iterable returned by a method like map or where.

Methods

add(E value) → void
Adds value at the end of the queue.
addAll(Iterable<E> iterable) → void

addFirst(E value) → void
Adds value at the beginning of the queue.
addLast(E value) → void
Adds value at the end of the queue.
any(bool test(E element)) bool
Checks whether any element of this iterable satisfies test. [...]
inherited
cast<R>() Queue<R>
Provides a view of this queue as a queue of R instances, if necessary. [...]
override
clear() → void
Removes all elements in the queue. The size of the queue becomes zero.
contains(Object? element) bool
Whether the collection contains an element equal to element. [...]
inherited
elementAt(int index) → E
Returns the indexth element. [...]
inherited
every(bool test(E element)) bool

inherited
firstWhere(bool test(E element), {E orElse()?}) → E
Returns the first element that satisfies the given predicate test. [...]
inherited
fold<T>(T initialValue, T combine(T previousValue, E element)) → T
