Symbol

final class Symbol extends Serializable

This class provides a simple way to get unique objects for equal strings. Since symbols are interned, they can be compared using reference equality. Instances of Symbol can be created easily with Scala's built-in quote mechanism.

For instance, the Scala term 'mysym will invoke the constructor of the Symbol class in the following way: Symbol("mysym").
