How to write text files in Scala

This is an excerpt from the Scala Cookbook (partially modified for the internet). This is Recipe 12.2, “How to write text files in Scala.”

Problem

You want to write plain text to a file, such as a simple configuration file, text data file, or other plain-text document.

Solution

Scala doesn’t offer any special file writing capability, so fall back and use the Java PrintWriter or FileWriter approaches:

Java “file write” (or “file save”) methods

Java write/save FAQ: Can you share an example of how to write to a file in Java?

Sure. Here are two "Java file save" or "Java file write" examples, taken from my Java file utilities article (Java file utilities to write, save, open, read, and copy files). I'm not going to explain these too much, but if you need a simple method to write to a file in your Java programs, I hope these methods will help you.

Java file open, read, and write utilities

Java file utilities FAQ: Do you have any Java file utilities you can share?

As I was working on another Java/Swing application this weekend, I ran across my "Java file utilities" class, and I thought I'd share that class here today. It's nothing too major, but it does include Java methods that let you open, read, write, and copy files using Java.

A Java class that writes to and reads from a remote socket

I'm not going to describe this much today, but here's the source code for a Java class I put together from a number of other sources on the internet. In short, this code uses a Java Socket to connect to a port on a remote server, sends a command to that server to be executed, and then reads the output from the command that is executed. As a result, I assume that all information sent is text (nothing binary).
