    ReQL command: for

    Command syntax

    for (doc : <Cursor>) { ... }


    Lazily iterate over a result set one element at a time.

    RethinkDB cursors can be iterated through via the Java Iterable and Iterator interfaces; use standard Java commands like for loops to access each item in the sequence.

    Example: Let’s process all the elements!

    Cursor cursor = r.table("users").run(conn);
    for (Object doc : cursor) {

    Example: Stop the iteration prematurely and close the connection manually.

    Cursor cursor = r.table("users").run(conn);
    for (Object doc: cursor) {
        ok = processRow(doc);
        if (ok == false) {
