Hello, Computer

In almost any programming language, one of the first things you learn to do is create a “Hello World” program.

In a blog, this manifests as a “Hello World” blog posting. Unfortunately, at the time of writing, this blog doesn’t actually go out to the world. It is just a lonely little black and white post, echoing off the walls of localhost. If you are reading this (and you are not me) then this has actually gone somewhere, and hopefully it has turned into something cool.

We’ll see.

Copy and paste the following code into notepad, and save it as hello.cmd

@echo off
@echo Hello, World.

Double-click on hello.cmd and congratulate yourself on the programming equivalent of learning “Smoke on the water”.
