What does the method fill(int[], int fromIndex, int toIndex, int val) do in java?

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

The fill(int[] a, int fromIndex, int toIndex, int val) method of the java.util.Arrays class assigns the specified int value to each element of the specified range of the specified array of integers. The range to be filled extends from index fromIndex, inclusive, to index toIndex, exclusive.(If fromIndex==toIndex, the range to be filled is empty.)

Example

import java.util.Arrays;

public class ArrayDemo {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      int arr[] = new int[] {1, 6, 3, 2, 9};
      System.out.println("Actual values: ");

      for (int value : arr) {
         System.out.println("Value = " + value);
      }
      Arrays.fill(arr, 2, 4, 18);
      System.out.println("New values after using fill() method: ");

      for (int value : arr) {
         System.out.println("Value = " + value);
      }
   }
}

Output

Actual values:
Value = 1
Value = 6
Value = 3
Value = 2
Value = 9
New values after using fill() method:
Value = 1
Value = 6
Value = 18
Value = 18
Value = 9
