Your Help Needed
If you know Scala, please write code for some of the tasks not implemented in Scala.

Scala is a hybrid Functional/OO language developed by Martin Odersky and his team at LAMP. Scala compiles to JVM bytecode, and can inter-operate with Java code.

The language is most focused on the results of the program, therefor the considered harmful technical computer oriented concepts like threads, semaphore, pointers, coercion, casting, goto- and break statements to struggle with are not there. For parallel processing (that very simple can archived) these concept are present but not visible to the programmer.

Lots of RC tasks addresses technical "features" of goto's, break, continue, side effects, pointers, type-casting, weak-typing and so on and are deliberately not Scala's cup of tea.

Compiled strongly-typed languages, where more defects can be caught at compile time, are less prone to runtime failures than interpreted or weakly-typed languages.
