BitSet Class clear() method

Syntax:

    public void clear();
    public void clear(int bit_in);
    public void clear(int st_in, int en_in);
  • clear() method is available in java.util package.
  • clear() method is used to clear all the bits presented in this BitSet.
  • clear(int bit_in) method is used to clear the bit presented in this BitSet.
  • clear(int st_in, int en_in) method is used to clear the bits presented in a range from st_in(starting bit) to en_in(ending bit) of this BitSet.
  • clear() method does not throw an exception at the time of clearing bits in this bit set.
  • clear(int bit_in) method may throw an exception at the time of assigning index.
    IndexOutOfBoundsException: This exception may throw when the given bit_in (bit index) is less than 0.
  • clear(int st_in, int en_in) method may throw an exception at the time of assigning index.
    IndexOutOfBoundsException: This exception may throw when st_in or en_in is less than 0 or st_in>en_in.
  • These are non-static methods, it is accessible with the class object and if we try to access these methods with the class name then we will get an error.

Parameter(s):

  • In the first case, clear(), it does not accept any parameter.
  • In the second case, clear(int bit_in)
    • int bit_in – represents the bit to be cleared.
  • In the third case, clear(int st_in, int en_in)
    • int st_in – represent the first bit to be unset.
    • int en_in – represents the ending bit to be unset.

Return value:

In all the cases, the return type of the method is void, it returns nothing.

Example:

// Java program to demonstrate the example 
// of void clear() method of BitSet.

import java.util.*;

public class ClearOfBitSet {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // create an object of BitSet
        BitSet bs = new BitSet(10);

        // By using set() method is to set
        // the values in BitSet 
        bs.set(10);
        bs.set(20);
        bs.set(30);
        bs.set(40);
        bs.set(50);
        bs.set(60);
        bs.set(70);
        bs.set(80);

        // Display Bitset
        System.out.println("bs: " + bs);

        // By using clear(40) method is to remove
        // the given bit 
        bs.clear(40);

        // Display Bitset
        System.out.println("bs.clear(40): " + bs);

        // By using clear(20,50) method is to remove
        // all the bits at the given range
        bs.clear(20, 50);

        // Display Bitset
        System.out.println("bs.clear(20,50): " + bs);

        // By using clear() method is to remove
        // all the bits from BitSet
        bs.clear();

        // Display Bitset
        System.out.println("bs.clear(): " + bs);
    }
}

Output

bs: {10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80}
bs.clear(40): {10, 20, 30, 50, 60, 70, 80}
bs.clear(20,50): {10, 50, 60, 70, 80}
bs.clear(): {}
