Java For Each

Hello. Why is this "new school" for each loop better than the "old school" for loop, besides the cleaner code?

is it a compiler or a run time difference?

Here is an article I found on StackOverflow.com that kinda talks about it. It looks like it is mostly just a cleaner look, but there is probably a performance hit with the allocating of iterators on the for-each method.

Thank you, Keli'i Martin.
