Literal Singleton TypesEdit this page on GitHub
Literal Singleton Types allow primitive literals to be used as types. For example:
val t: 42 = 42 val x: "Jedi" = "Jedi"
It is also possible to define functions returning or taking singleton types such as
def f(t: Double): t.type = t val a: 1.2 = f(1.2)
