Scala ( SKAH-lah) is a general-purpose programming language providing support for functional programming and a strong static type system. Designed to be concise, many of Scala's design decisions aimed to address criticisms of Java. Scala source code is intended to be compiled to Java bytecode, so that the resulting executable code runs on a Java virtual machine. Read more on Wikipedia...

Example from Compiler Explorer:
// Type your code here, or load an example. object Square { def square(num: Int): Int = num * num }
Example from Riju:
println("Hello, world!")
Example from hello-world:
object HelloWorld extends App { println("Hello World") }
// Hello world in Scala object HelloWorld extends App { println("Hello world!") }
Example from Linguist:
#!/bin/sh exec scala "$0" "$@" !# object HelloWorld { def main(args: Array[String]) { println("Hello, world!") } }
Example from Wikipedia:
val urls = List("", "") def fromURL(url: String) = .getLines().mkString("\n") val t = System.currentTimeMillis() println("time: " + (System.currentTimeMillis - t) + "ms")
