Evaluation of an infix expression that is fully parenthesized using stack in java.
Infix notation is the common arithmetic and logical formula notation, in which operators are written
infixstyle between the operands they act on (e.g. 2 + 2). It is not as simple to parse by computers as prefix notation
( e.g. + 2 2 ) or postfix notation ( e.g. 2 2 + ), but many programming languages use it due to its familiarity.
Here are the steps to evaluate infix expression which is fully parenthesized using stack.
1. Read one input character
2. Actions at end of each input
Opening brackets (2.1) Push into stack and then Go to step (1)
Number (2.2) Push into stack and then Go to step (1)
Operator (2.3) Push into stack and then Go to step (1)
Closing brackets (2.4) Pop from character stack
(2.4.1) Pop is used four times
The first popped element is assigned to op2
The second popped element is assigned to op
The third popped element is assigned to op1
The fourth popped element is the remaining opening bracket,
which can be discarded.
Evaluate op1 op op2
Convert the result into character and
push into the stack
New line character (2.5) Pop from stack and print the answer
STOP

What is failfast in java?
A failfast system is nothing but immediately report any failure that
is likely to lead to failure. When a problem occurs, a failfast system
fails immediately. In Java, we can find this behavior with iterators.
Incase, you have called iterator on a collection object, and another
thread tries to modify the collection object, then concurrent modification
exception will be thrown. This is called failfast.
I respect faith, but doubt is what gets you an education.
