Create a File in Scala

Here, we will create a text file using the File and PrintWriter class. Then we will write data into the text file.

Scala code to create a file

The source code to create a file is given below. The given program is compiled and executed on the ubuntu 18.04 operating system successfully.

// Scala program to create a file


object Sample {
  // Main method
  def main(args: Array[String]) {
    //Create a file.
    val file = new File("Sample.txt")

    val pW = new PrintWriter(file);

    pW.write("Hello World");

    println("File created successfully");


File created successfully


In the above program, we used an object-oriented approach to create the program. And, we created a singleton object Sample and defined the main() function. The main() function is the entry point for the program.

In the main() function, we created an object of the File class and specified the name of the file. Then we passed the object of the File class to the constructor of PrintWriter class to write data into the file.
