package java.util.function;

import java.util.Objects;

 * Represents an operation that accepts two input arguments and returns no
 * result.  This is the two-arity specialization of {@link Consumer}.
 * Unlike most other functional interfaces, {@code BiConsumer} is expected
 * to operate via side-effects.
 * <p>This is a <a href="package-summary.html">functional interface</a>
 * whose functional method is {@link #accept(Object, Object)}.
 * @param <T> the type of the first argument to the operation
 * @param <U> the type of the second argument to the operation
 * @see Consumer
 * @since 1.8
public interface BiConsumer<T, U> {

     * Performs this operation on the given arguments.
     * @param t the first input argument
     * @param u the second input argument
    void accept(T t, U u);

     * Returns a composed {@code BiConsumer} that performs, in sequence, this
     * operation followed by the {@code after} operation. If performing either
     * operation throws an exception, it is relayed to the caller of the
     * composed operation.  If performing this operation throws an exception,
     * the {@code after} operation will not be performed.
     * @param after the operation to perform after this operation
     * @return a composed {@code BiConsumer} that performs in sequence this
     * operation followed by the {@code after} operation
     * @throws NullPointerException if {@code after} is null
