The next program prints the Hello World message on the screen (std-out).
see "Hello World"
Run the programEdit
to run the program, save the code in a file, for example : hello.ring then from the command line or terminal, run it using the ring interpreter
Since the Ring language is not case-sensitive, the same program can be written in different styles
.. tip:: It's better to select one style and use it in all of the program source code
SEE "Hello World"
See "Hello World"
Using Ring we can write multi-line literal, see the next example
See " Hello Welcome to the Ring programming language How are you? "
Also you can use the nl constant to insert new line and you can use the + operator to concatenate strings
.. note:: nl value means a new line and the actual codes that represent a newline is different between operating systems
See "Hello" + nl + "Welcome to the Ring programming language" + nl + "How are you?"
You can get the input from the user using the give command
See "What is your name? " Give cName See "Hello " + cName
No Explicit End For StatementsEdit
You don't need to use ';' or press ENTER to separate statements. The previous program can be written in one line.
See "What is your name? " give cName see "Hello " + cName
We can write one line comments and multi-lines comments
The comment starts with # or //
Multi-lines comments are written between /* and */
/* Program Name : My first program using Ring Date : 2015.05.08 Author : Mahmoud Fayed */ See "What is your name? " # print message on screen give cName # get input from the user see "Hello " + cName # say hello! // See "Bye!"
.. note:: Using // to comment a lines of code is just a code style.
