Hello WorldEdit

Here is a Hello World program written in QuickBASIC:

CLS
PRINT "Hello World"

As QuickBASIC programs run in a DOS environment, the CLS command is generally used as the first line to remove clutter from the output screen caused by previous runs. The PRINT command then simply displays its arguments on the screen.
