Scala Question

Editor does not contain a main type

Just going through the sample Scala code on Scala website, but encountered an annoying error when trying to run it.

Here's the code: http://www.scala-lang.org/node/45. On running it on Eclipse, I got this message 'Editor does not contain a main type' that prevents it from running.

Is there anything I need to do...i.e break that file into multiple files, or what?

I have this problem a lot with Eclipse and Scala. It helps if you clean your workspace and rebuild your Project.

Sometimes Eclipse doesn't recognize correctly which files it has to recompile :(

Edit: The Code runs fine in Eclipse
