Installing latest version of Scala on Debian

So this is basically a combination of this and this:

sudo apt-get purge scala
sudo apt-get autoremove

cd ~/desktop/scala
wget http://downloads.lightbend.com/scala/2.11.8/scala-2.11.8.tgz
tar xzf scala-2.11.8.tgz
sudo mv scala-2.11.8 /usr/share/scala

sudo ln -s /usr/share/scala/bin/scala /usr/bin/scala
sudo ln -s /usr/share/scala/bin/scalac /usr/bin/scalac
sudo ln -s /usr/share/scala/bin/fsc /usr/bin/fsc
sudo ln -s /usr/share/scala/bin/sbaz /usr/bin/sbaz
sudo ln -s /usr/share/scala/bin/sbaz-setup /usr/bin/sbaz-setup
sudo ln -s /usr/share/scala/bin/scaladoc /usr/bin/scaladoc
sudo ln -s /usr/share/scala/bin/scalap /usr/bin/scalap

Everything is easy when you know how!
