Scala Automatic Resource Management

This project is an attempt to provide an Automatic-Resource-Management library for the scala distribution. It is based off of code contributed to the Scalax project.

Using scala-arm

In SBT:

libraryDependencies += "com.jsuereth" %% "scala-arm" % "1.3"

or

libraryDependencies += "com.jsuereth" % "scala-arm_2.9.2" % "1.3"
libraryDependencies += "com.jsuereth" % "scala-arm_2.10" % "1.3"

In Maven:

<dependency>
   <groupId>com.jsuereth</groupId>
   <artifactId>scala-arm_${scala.binary.version}</artifactId>
   <version>1.3</version>
</dependency>

Examples

Scala-arm provides many ways of managing resources and re-using code. Here's a few examples.

Imperative Style

import resource._
// Copy input into output.
for(input <- managed(new java.io.FileInputStream("test.txt"));
    output <- managed(new java.io.FileOutputStream("test2.txt"))) {
  val buffer = new Array[Byte](512)
  def read(): Unit = input.read(buffer) match {
    case -1 => ()
    case  n => output.write(buffer,0,size); read()
  }
  read()
}

Delimited continuation style

import resource._
import java.io.{File, FileInputStream => Fin, FileOutputStream => Fout}
def copyFile(from: File, to: File): Unit =
  withResources {
    val f = managed(new Fin(from)).reflect[Unit]
    val t = managed(new Fout(to)).reflect[Unit]
    val buffer = new Array[Byte](512)
    def read(): Unit = f.read(buffer) match {
      case -1 => ()
      case  n => t.write(buffer,0,n); read()
    }
    read()
}
