Scala Language Using try-catch clauses


In addition to functional constructs such as Try, Option and Either for error handling, Scala also supports a syntax similar to Java's, using a try-catch clause (with a potential finally block as well). The catch clause is a pattern match:

try { 
  // ... might throw exception
} catch {
  case ioe: IOException => ... // more specific cases first
  case e: Exception => ...
  // uncaught types will be thrown
} finally {
  // ...
