Scala Map clear() method with example
  • Last Updated : 13 Aug, 2019

The clear() method is utilized to clear the map. value clear is a member of scala.collection.mutable.Map[String, Int].

Method Definition: def clear(): Unit

Return Type: It returns empty map.

Example #1:




// Scala program of clear()
// method
  
// Creating object
object GfG
  
    // Main method
    def main(args:Array[String])
    {
      
        // Creating a mutable map
        val m1 = scala.collection.mutable.Map("geeks" -> 5
                                    "for" -> 3, "geeks" -> 1)
          
        // Applying clear method
        val result = m1.clear()
          
        // Displays output
        println(result)
      
    }
}
Output:



()

Here, a mutable map is used as clear() is a member of scala.collection.mutable.Map[String, Int].
Example #2:




// Scala program of clear()
// method
  
// Creating object
object GfG
  
// Main method
def main(args:Array[String])
{
  
// Creating a immutable map
val m1 = scala.collection.immutable.Map("geeks" -> 5
                                "for" -> 3, "geeks" -> 1)
  
// Applying clear method
val result = m1.clear()
  
// Displays output
println(result)
  
}
}
Output:

prog.scala:16: error: value clear is not a member of scala.collection.immutable.Map[String, Int]
val result = m1.clear()
^
one error found

Here, one error is found as immutable map is utilized but clear method is a member of scala.collection.mutable.Map[String, Int].
