Solution

The classical introductory exercise. Just say "Hello, World!".

"Hello, World!" is the traditional first program for beginning programming in a new language or environment.

The objectives are simple:

  • Write a function that returns the string "Hello, World!".
  • Run the test suite and make sure that it succeeds.
  • Submit your solution and check it at the website.

If everything goes well, you will be ready to fetch your first real exercise.

Running the tests

To compile and run the tests, just run the following in your exercise directory:

$ nim c -r test_hello_world.nim

Submitting Exercises

Note that, when trying to submit an exercise, make sure the solution is in the $EXERCISM_WORKSPACE/nim/hello-world directory.

You can find your Exercism workspace by running exercism debug and looking for the line that starts with Exercises Directory.
