Scala Keywords

Keywords or Reserved words are the words in a language that are used for some internal process or represent some predefined actions. These words are therefore not allowed to use as variable names or objects. Doing this will result in a compile-time error.

Example:

filter_none

edit
close

play_arrow

link
brightness_4
code

// Scala Program to illustrate the keywords 
  
// Here object, def, and var are valid keywords
object Main 
{
    def main(args: Array[String]) 
    {
        var p = 10
        var q = 30
        var sum = p + q
        println("The sum of p and q is :"+sum);
    }
}

Output:

The sum of p and q is :40
