The "Hello, world" program is one of the most famous programs in the world (at least to programmers). Almost all programmers have written at least one Hello World Program, and even more if they learned more than one programming language. The Hello World program is generally the first things that a programmer does when getting started in a new language. A Hello World program displays the text "Hello, world!" when run, usually in a Console Window. This type of program was first seen in in Brian Kernigham and Dennis Ritchie's book, The C Programming Language. According to programmer tradition, this is the first test a C programmer makes in a new enviroment.


Of course, there are variations on this program. Most of them involve grammatical or spelling errors, though.
