/**
 *  The <tt>Stack</tt> class represents a last-in-first-out (LIFO) stack of generic items.
 *  It supports the usual <em>push</em> and <em>pop</em> operations, along with methods
 *  for peeking at the top item, testing if the stack is empty, getting the number of
 *  items in the stack, and iterating over the items in LIFO order.
 *  <p>
 *  This implementation uses a singly-linked list with a nested class for
 *  linked-list nodes.
 *  The <em>push</em>, <em>pop</em>, <em>peek</em>, <em>size</em>, and <em>is-empty</em>
 *  operations all take constant time in the worst case.
 *  <p>
 *  For additional documentation, see <a href="http://introcs.cs.princeton.edu/43stack">Section 4.3</a> of
 *  <i>Introduction to Programming in Java: An Interdisciplinary Approach</i> by Robert Sedgewick and Kevin Wayne.
