// Import Stack 
import scala.collection.mutable._
  
// Creating object 
object GfG 
  
    // Main method 
    def main(args:Array[String]) 
    
      
        // Creating stacks  
        val s1 = Stack(1, 2, 3, 4, 5)  
            
        val s2 = Stack(3, 4, 5)  
            
        // Print the stack 
        println("Stack_1: " + s1
            
        println("Stack_2: " + s2
            
        // Applying diff method  
        val result = s1.diff(s2)  
            
        // Displays output  
        print("(Stack_1 - Stack_2): " + result)

Output:

Stack_1: Stack(1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
Stack_2: Stack(3, 4, 5)
