Interface Consumer<T>

Type Parameters:
T - the type of the input to the operation
All Known Subinterfaces:
Stream.Builder<T>
Functional Interface:
This is a functional interface and can therefore be used as the assignment target for a lambda expression or method reference.

@FunctionalInterface
public interface Consumer<T>
Represents an operation that accepts a single input argument and returns no result. Unlike most other functional interfaces, Consumer is expected to operate via side-effects.

This is a functional interface whose functional method is accept(Object).
