How to left-justify a multiline Scala string

If you ever need to left-justify a multiline Scala string, the solution is to use the stripMargin method, as shown in this example:

def getWordFormatted(s: String): String = {
      |Word of the Day
      |Word: $s

The | character has a special meaning when used in conjunction with stripMargin, so that method results in a string like this being output:

Word of the Day
Word: the word
