Scala is a Java-compatible programming language with many
modern language features.  It is Java-compatible in that
Scala and Java classes can directly reference each other and
subclass each other with no glue code needed.  It
includes modern language features such as closures,
pattern-matching, parametric types, and virtual type members.
This package includes the various tools used to develop
code written in Scala.  It includes a compiler (scalac),
an interpreter and script runner (scala), the offline
compiler (fsc), and source-scanning documentation
generator (scaladoc).
