Consider this data sequence: “3 11 5 5 5 2 4 6 6 7 3 -8”. Any value that is the same as the immediately preceding value is considered a CONSECUTIVE DUPLICATE.

LANGUAGE: Java

CHALLENGE:

Consider this data sequence: “3 11 5 5 5 2 4 6 6 7 3 -8”. Any value that is the same as the immediately preceding value is considered a CONSECUTIVE DUPLICATE. In this example, there are three such consecutive duplicates: the 2nd and 3rd 5s and the second 6. Note that the last 3 is not a consecutive duplicate because it was preceded by a 7.

Write some code that uses a loop to read such a sequence of non-negative integers , terminated by a negative number. When the code exits the loop it should print the number of consecutive duplicates encountered. In the above case, that value would be 3.
